Kristina's color challenge #31






The colors that Kristina presented this week were so deep and rich.. I had a couple of things flying through my head and one was nixed because I didn't have all the colors I needed in ink re-fill bottles for the stamp effect I wanted to do. So what do you do improvise... With these amazing colors strange enough I had Christmas come to mind. I really wanted to use a stamp set I ordered a few month back and haven't found the perfect way to use yet... Until now.. How perfect are these rich deep royal color for the Wise-men. I used my "Stampin' Write markers to color in the details and Crystal effects to add even more depth... 

Jump over to Kristina's and try these colors for your self.. Maybe you might even find a little Christmas too.......
