PWP Winter Blog Hop & Giveaway

12.06.2013

Hello everyone and Welcome to the Paper Wing Productions Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway!  If you've arrived here from Carrie's Blog, then you're in the right place.  If you’re just stopping by for a visit, please click HERE to start from the beginning.


This month our theme is Winter. So grab something warm, get comfortable and enjoy the hop. Instead of using the traditional Holiday colors for my Winter themed card I decided to play with some Carney Yellow and Amethyst Versa Color Ink Pads.
 

I started by inking up the large Santa image from the Jolly St. Nick stamp set in carney yellow and stamped it to the bottom right of my card front. Then I inked up the same image in Amethyst and stamped it directly over the carney Santa. The two images didn't line up evenly but that's the effect I was going for. I wanted the two colors to blend together but I wanted the yellow to show throw the amethyst. I also stamped the Dear Santa sentiment from the Christams Mix It Up stamp set the same way I stamped the Santa. Make sure to hop along and leave a few comments along the way because this months main prize is a $25.00 gift certificate to the Paper Wings Productions online store.
