JAI 382 colour challenge - Bethlehem Christmas


Friday means a new Just Add Ink challenge & this week Patrice has given us this elegant colour combination of fresh fig, smoky slate, black & white to work with.

I chose to make a Christmas card using my newest purchases, the Night in Bethlehem stamp & die bundle, and the Marbled background stamp.

Definitely not a traditional Christmas colour combination, but I like how the colours work together in the scene.

I've used some more images from Night in Bethlehem inside the card.

So that's my challenge card - what do you think? now head over to the JAI blog for lots of fab ideas from the team, and try the challenge too.

Thanks for visiting today. Pin my card for later inspiration and see the supply list below to see what you'll need to make your own version.

Inky wishes, Di

Oooh, the layered city scape works so well in the challenge colours, and your background is fabulous!

KimB said...

Just love your use of the marbled background here Di, adds so much atmosphere, and really showcases the wonderful die cut city layers. xxx

Lou said...

Such a clever (and stunning) idea to use the marbled stamp for a background. Adds such great depth - perfect to set off your great scene.

Jan said...

So pretty Di! I love the layered scene you’ve created and the background stamp adds another level of interest and suits it so beautifully! xx

Joanne Stubbings said...

The marbled background you’ve used looks amazing (and good different) in this colour combo! Very effective, and love the non-traditional Christmas idea!

I love the marbled background, Di - it looks like a fantastic sandstorm. Such a stunning choice for the cityscape.

Patrice said...

Gorgeous, Di. It looks like you had lots of fun putting this card together. I'm a bit jealous I couldn't find the time to join the fun & use these colours - another day soon for sure. x
