Christmas Challenge at DoubleClick Skittles and NEW DUAL RELEASE!

Welcome to a Week 2 of the newest challenge at DoubleClick Skittles!

Challenge #36 - Christmas or Blue/White

Nov. 25th - Dec. 8th

I'm so excited about the new Skittles release, but more about that later.  First, let me tell you about my project today, which was created with the new Skittles Holiday Traditions release in mind.

To begin, I inked a cute ornament stamp (So Suzy Stamps) with distress ink, then used clear embossing powder and my heat tool to seal in the colors.  Next, came a little watercolor "smooshing" with TH Cracked Pistachio, then once dry, some white chalk ink for a bokeh effect.

I've used several paper brands on this project.  Once in awhile, you need to mix it up to make a project work, right?  Since the vintage birds are singing, it's only fitting that I add some musical paper.  

I love the "retro meets modern" feel to this card.  I also love that the new holiday release sparkles!  Each color batch has glitter and glitz and it's so pretty in person.  These pictures don't really do it justice.  If you're like me, you have to have bling on your projects.  Rarely, do I NOT add bling.  The Skittles are the perfect accessory and size and coordinate nicely with sequins, buttons, etc.  Don't miss out on this release!  When they're gone.....they're gone!

As you know, for the first time ever, Carri has decided to do a dual DoubleClickSkittles release!
