BUGABOO STAMPS : CHRISTMS IN JULY :: DAY THREE



Our Christmas in July celebrations at Bugaboo Stamps' Catch the Bug blog is getting more exciting by the day!

Today is day three, and today's challenge is to use the colours

To inspire you - here is how I used them:


The image featured on my card is called Tropical Santa -Buried and I coloured him using my Copics and a white gel pen


Glossy Accents add interest to the sunglasses and ice cream.

To make up my card I used the following from my stash:

white CS  card base
cream CS card mat
raspberry red and cream DP
raspberry red die cut
raspberry red satin ribbon and bow
gems
sewn on star sequins and beads
chippy sentiment (that  misted to tone in more with the colour palette of the card)
