Christmas Colour Challenge
Janice has challenged us on StampTV to make a card using red, black and chartreuse. She was very specific that the green had to be that yellowy sort of green. I wasn't thinking Christmas at first but after looking at the gallery I decided the Christmas attempts did look good and I gave it a go. I wanted to create a window effect with the stamped and coloured scene, but rather than looking out of a window, you're supposed to have the impression that you're looking inside a window, to a warm and cosy peaceful Christmas scene inside the house. Hence the stamped snowflakes on the chartreuse background layer, as if you're outside. Not sure if it works, but I like it well enough.
