November Color Combo with Heather H.

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share another card using a color combo from Pinterest - and there also might be a little sneak peek of a new die that is releasing this next week! :)

I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card, but I wanted to use some slightly non-traditional colors, so when I found this summery inspiration piece on Pinterest, I knew it was perfect:

I loved the blues and grays - with a little pop of yellow!

I used a previously released stamp set called Happy Christmas for the manger silhouette, and heat embossed it in clear on watercolor paper. I die cut a negative space with a brand new (soon-to-be-releasing!) die, and did some watercoloring and ink splattering. I did some distress ink blending on some white cardstock to pop under the negative die cut sentiment, fitting back in the center of the "o" and "e", then mounted it on some dark gray cardstock, then onto a softer gray cardbase.

What do you think? Do you enjoy using color combos? Does this one inspire you? If you decide to use it to create something - I'd love to see what you make! Leave a link in the comments - I'd love to come visit and see what you created!

Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful day!
