Colour Create and we're hopping at Mo's Dream Team



Yayyyhh - it's the Third Thursday in the month which means that my fabbie teamies at Mo's Dream Team get together for a little Blog hop!  (If you're here to see my Colour Create card, please scroll down!)
This month's theme is The Colours of Autumn as set by our super- talented Jak.  If you're hopping along with us, hopefully you arrived here from Jane's blog and the next person to hop over to is Heidy.
I've used this wonderful new set of Carollers, each of which your can buy separately or as a set of four as I did and you can find them here!  And I finally got the hang of merging digital images, having followed this great tutorial by another fabbie teamie at Mo's, Debbie Pamment- the link is here.
Because the scene is so christmassy, I  struggled with autumn colours a little and maybe they're leaning more towards Christmas.  But their clothes are definitely  autumn colours!! The little paper wreath is from an Anna Griffin Christmas set that I bought years ago and keeps on giving!  Great for a frame for the sentiment.
Hope you can join us in the blog hop this month - don't forget that there are two $5 dollar 'vouchers' hidden somewhere along the way, and you could be the lucky commentor!

Now on to my card for our new Challenge at Colour Create and here's your picture to get those creative juices flowing! The colour palette is:  
   
      Burgundy, Green, Cream and Gold
       with the optional extra of Dimension

20 October - Challenge 82 - Sharon T - Burgundy, Cream, Green & Gold

Another Mo image from me - just can't get enough of them at the moment and this one is the so cute Ragged Angel
I've added some glitter to her wings and the flowers for a bit of sparkle and distressed the edges with some gold stain!
Can you see the gorgeous Holly die cut which is cut with a new Memory Box die - so delicate and yummy!! The roses were made with a couple of dies - the large one a Spellbinder and the small, a Marianne Creatable - my bit of dimension!
At Colour Create this week, we have a fab sponsor, The Rubber Room, so play along to be in with a chance to win something  yummy from them!

Stunning makes from my teamies at Colour Create too so don't forget to pop on over there for a look see!
That's my long post fiinished - thanks for stopping by - have a great day!!

SAMARA NAVI said...

Dear Julie...I don't know where to start other than to say your work is absolutely "stellar!" Now, about the age thing...not only are you beautiful but how on earth do you get 3 cubs THAT age? Were you 3 when you started??? haha

This card of yours, omgosh...your coloring is OUT OF THIS WORLD (screamed!!!) it is beyond the beyond! The intricacies of your cards (I spent 15 minutes going through detail by detail) are spectacular! Not too busy (unlike me who in University Art Classes kept being told "white space Samara...white space!!!!" but all the same the absolutely perfect amount of accessory to do and say something powerful and beautiful about your image, which is darling - which ARE darling! This particular card (and all) but I shall stick with this, appears to be moving. It is surely the way you have designed the card. It has movement in it, joy in it and celebrates just the way the season should! It is a real joy to be here. NOW I must look for your subscribe by email thingi. Also my lovely...how on earth do you balance even cooking a meal with all the DT's you are on? I can imagine they feel nothing but honored to have you! xox Samara

SAMARA NAVI said...

Hey Julie...do you have a subscribe by email gadget?

Alice Wertz said...

wow! these are gorgeous, Julie! beautiful coloring and designs. love them both!

Becky Dunham said...

Wow ... I am having so much fun browsing through your blog and am sooo glad I stumbled across this little creation! I have been admiring these images (including the lamp post) from Mo's for so long now and you have convinced me to bite the bullet and go and buy them. I am soooo going to get stuck into some Christmas cards this weekend. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful work. Julie :D
