JAI #31 - Colour Challenge

This week over at Just Add Ink it's a colour challenge

I really had no idea of what I was going to do for this challenge except that I knew what colours I had to use and that I wanted to use my new Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder.  Before I sat down to make this card, I sorted through all my stamps, putting all my retiring ones aside and putting all those staying back in the cupboard.  Whilst I was doing that I came across my lovely Dasher, who has lived at my house for quite a while now but who has never been used.  With the time flying like it is, I thought I'd get a start on my Christmas cards and this is what I came up with.

Isn't he lovely?  I 've stamped him in Chocolate Chip and I've added some Diamond Stickles to his antlers and to the bottom on the sentiment.  I love how they have turned a goldy colour on the Kraft, or soon to be renamed Crumb Cake.  I've rubbed some Versamark over the embossed piece to highlight the embossing.  It came together pretty quickly and I think it will be pretty easy to mass produce.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Dasher, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Real Red
Accessories:  Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain, Vintage Wallpaper embossing Folder, Big Shot, dimensionals and Diamond Stickles (Ranger)
