Blessed Sunday and 2nd Day of Christmas! If you missed yesterday's post introducing our 12 Days of Christmas challenges, scroll down to read yesterday's post to find out more!
On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me two turtle doves...which are said to represent the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.
Today's challenge is hosted by my friend and design team mate Dina Kowal...the prize package comes from her good friend Sue at Heart and Soul Rubber Stamp Co.! Sue believes that it’s possible to make a difference in someone’s life by sharing your time and talents with those around you - maybe even an eternal difference by sharing God’s Word with them! Heart and Soul has a wide selection of rubber stamps, including some of Dina's favorite encouraging sentiments and verses (a few designs by Dina too, if you look around!).
If you visit the Heart and Soul website, it will be no surprise to you that Sue's favorite color is purple! Purple is also known as a color of royalty, and a beautifully appropriate color for Epiphany, the celebration of the visit of the Magi to the infant Jesus. Soooooooo, our challenge to you is to create a Christmas card incorporating the color purple. You will receive a bonus entry if you use the same colors Dina did: purple/eggplant, olive green, and grey!
Dina's card uses a beautiful Amaryllis stamp from Heart and Soul - the amaryllis is a beautiful bulb flower that blooms at Christmas time. She used colored pencils to color in the image. Look how gorgeous her shading and blending are!
The color names noted below are the specific pencils that she used - yours don't have to be exactly the same!
Dini, what a blessing you are to me! Thank you for hosting today's challenge!
Here's the beautiful prize that Sue from Heart and Soul Rubber Stamps is providing for today's challenge winner! Thank you for being so generous!
You have until January 9th to participate in any of the 12 challenges - or all of them! You can upload your card to the Splitcoast Gallery and tag it with the keyword: DD12days02.
