The Ton November Challenge - Holiday

Hello everyone!!!

It's November 1st and it's time for a new challenge at The Ton Challenge blog!!!
For this month we are having a cue word challenge and the cue word is

HOLIDAY


The Ton's Fall 2017 Release includes lots of beautiful and unique holiday stamp sets. For this challenge I chose Holiday Love Poinsettia from the Fall Release. And I challenged myself to use untraditional color combination: aqua, magenta, brown and gold. 


I started by heat embossing the Holiday Love Poinsettia image on some Bristol smooth paper in gold pearl EP. I watercolored the image mainly in aqua and cut it with the coordinating die. The stripes was stamped using Haute Stripes cling stamp in Pink Derby on a white cardstock. I heat embossed the stripes in Iridescent EP for some sparkle. The sentiment is from City Girls: Winter Edition. I stamped it repeatedly on a strip of white cardstock in Pink Derby as well and glued it on the striped panel. For the background I splattered clear water on the dark brown shimmer panel and heat embossed it in gold. I foam mounted the striped panel on the brown panel and added Holiday Love Poinsettia on it. I embellished the card with some sequins from Medallion Gold and Glass Slippers and added tiny dots on the center of poinsettias using gold Pico Embellisher.


I can't say I'm happy with the result but the color combination is quite interesting though :)... will try that again someday.

Please stop by The Ton Challenge blog for more inspirations from my team mates and the guest designer for this month. And play along! As always one winner will get a $50 gift certificate to The Ton Shop!

Thank you so much for looking!
Have a wonderful day!

  1. I think you should be happy TaeEun as this is very pretty and the brown goes beautifully with the sparkly pink and the aqua blue of the poinsettia, wonderfully coloured of course, and the sequins finish it perfectly. x

  2. Too bad poinsettias don't come in that color, TaeEun, because they're gorgeous in blue.

  3. I'm normally not a glitter girl, TaeEun, but this bit of pink with the brown card has tickled me pink! I'm with Bobby... too bad we can't food-color Poinsettias like Carnations! Gorgeous card... xx
