MFT (My Favorite Things) color challenge #100

Unfortanitely I did not use any MFT products on this card, I could not find any in my stash that would work with how the card was turning out.

I decided to go for some paint smearing technique, you know from the all mighty Jennifer McGuire Ink a while back she posted a video.

I believe this card would be FANTASTIC for a Veteran or a Soldier overseas during the Holiday season, tell me what you think in a comment.

 I started off by picking colors close to the challenge.

I chose Daler Rowney paint in the colors Crimson, Yellow Ochre, Coeruleum, and light blue.

Some water color paper from my stash as well.
 I at first did all four colors.
 Then I rearranged the blues and tried again.

Then I had an aha moment and thought, Kraft Card base with the reds and blues paint dragged and add snowflakes over it.
 I used some Silver Pearl embossing powder to embossing the snow flakes X3.

They are wooden and from my abundance stash.

Tombow Mono Liquid glue to adhere all the things.

Heavy Weight White card stock to cut out the sentiment.
All done, this is with out the flash on my camera

This one is with my flash on

Here is a close up, so glad and happy with how it turned out.

An all American Christmas card and totally no traditional colors.
