Christmas is brown here :)

Hello All,

When I came across the Indian Craft Room challenge # 13, I knew I just HAD TO give it a try. The thing that excited me the most was the theme: Non-traditional colours! :) I love to bend rules (specially the not so clearly defined ones!), so here comes, my violet and brown take on Christmas :) This is the first time I have tried a Japanese Fan technique. Though I was wary, I am really happy with the outcome :) The vintage Father Christmas image is a free printable from bnute.com. :) The background is a random print of everything related to Christmas, it is a very light beige print but darned lack of light prevents me from taking a proper photo! :(





And also to:

1. Make it Monday challenge.
2. 2 sisters challenge
3. Christmas Card Week 3 challenge
4. Make a Christmas Card challenge

Happy Quilling

Pritesh

Hi!
Very cute card! Love the color combo! To be able to play along with us at Homyachok challenge blog you need to add a abnner and a direct link of the challenge. Although I have some doubts that these warm colors and leaves&flourish can be considered to be "winter ornament"..
Anyway, it looks cute =)

Pritesh Ananth Krishnan said...

Thank you! And I know, these are not the ideal colours for your challenge. I still am working on the piece I intend for Homyachok challenge specially :)

Hanneke said...
