Simply Stampin Challenge - colour week

This weeks Simply Stampin Challenge is a colour theme.  The colours are Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla - lovely!
As I am in Christmas mode, the Ornament Keepsakes stamps had to come out again! I find these are so versatile, and having a range of sizes allows for endless variations in what can be achieved.  After much deliberation I decided to use Rich Razzlebury as the base for the baubles and stamp using white ink.  I think it gives the baubles quite a nice frosted look.  The biggest challenge was creating the "bough", so I used the large tree and small branch from the "Lovely as a Tree" set, giving it a liberal sprinkling of glitter! Some Rich Razzleberry ribbon and flat back jewels just give it a finish!  I think I might make some more like this in different colours as I quite like the classic look...hope you do too!
