Vintage Frosty - CR84FN36

It's time for another color challenge at CR84FN, thanks to those who played along with us last week, it's always wonderful to see every one's use of the colors.  This weeks colors are Yellow, Kraft and Neutral, we'd love to have you play along!

I had a few things in mind for this weeks colors, but my muse had other ideas, and quite a few of my pieces ended up in the garbage.  I decide to use the wonderful Vintage Frosty from the Artistic Outpost Frosty and Friends plate to create a nontraditional color Christmas card.


I stamped Frosty in Ranger Coffee Archival on Vanilla card stock, coloring the image with a Saffron marker.  The edges are sponged with Ranger Walnut Stain Distress ink.  The Kraft panel is embossed with a Texture Fades folder and highlighted with Jenni Bowlin Malted Milk Paint Dabber.  The seam binding is dyed with Walnut Stain Distress Stain.  To get the variegated color in the seam binding, I spritzed first before dying.  To embellish, I added the Bells and a holiday tag.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Walnut Stain Distress Stain, Malted Milk Paint Dabber, Saffron Marker
Card Stock- Kraft, Saffron, Chocolate
Other - Seam Binding, Texture Fades Embossing Folder, Bells, Glue Dots, The Sticky Thumb Dimensionals, Ink Blending Tool, Non Stick Craft Sheet, Distress Tool

So very sweet. I love the darling little snowman and that these are not "typical" Christmas colors. I think that is a lot more creative than using normal Christmas colors. :)
