Color Throwdown #171

I saw the Color Throwdown this week and really liked the colors (Bravo Burgundy, Creamy Caramel, Soft Suede & Old Olive) so decided to play.  I wanted to use Mary Fish's technique of coloring the silver glimmer paper so I punched the ornament and colored it with Old Olive ink.  I did it twice but I still don't think that you can see it very well.  I like these colors but feel that the card is just sort of drab, especially for a Christmas card.  I may have to try this again.

The base of the card is Bravo Burgundy. The layers are Soft Suede, Creamy Caramel and finally Soft Suede again which I ran through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The decoration on the ornament is stamped on vanilla cardstock with B.B. craft ink and embossed with clear powder then popped up on a dimensional.  The ornament is also on a dimensional on a layer of vanilla and Creamy Caramel.  A piece of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon is the final touch.

Stamps: Delightful Decorations
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Creamy Caramel, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Silver Glimmer paper
Ink: Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy (craft)
Accessories: Embossing folder,  Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, gold cord (SU ret.), 3/4" circle punch, rhinestone, dimensionals, red sticky tape, clear embossing powder
