CCT14 Christmas Rainbow

The Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge No. 14 is:

It was a challenge. I don't usually think of rainbow colours and Christmas going together other than red and green. Here is my card:

I recently picked up a stamp set from Stamp-it Australia at a garage sale and this ornament intrigued me. It does not have an outline, so I had to create a mortise mask to enable me to sponge Distress Ink through the hole to colour just the balls. I tried to leave the centers paler as though that is where the light would hit them. The branches are from a Flourishes set.

I put some Nuvo White Blizzard Crystal Drops on the snowflakes here and there to add some shine. This card is 4 X 8.5 inches. Still time to play in the challenge if you want to tackle a toughie!

This stamp is so pretty and your baubles really do look sparkly and reflective. They look good in all the colours.
Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.
