Waffle Flower Challenge

Are you looking for a challenge to play today? Check out the Waffle Flower Monthly Challenge! This month we're celebrating THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! Yep! We're looking for holiday cards! I know I'm glad to have as many done ahead of time as possible.

Holiday cards can get overwhelming.  To keep it interesting we're providing a "mini theme" every week to  help jump start your creativity.  It's just a different twist on the monthly theme - a way to share ideas for different ways to play along. I've got two friends joining me: Karren Johnson from Karen J. Stamping Stuff  and Lindsey Larson from Occasional Crafting.   And we're challenging you to make a  NON TRADITIONAL COLORED HOLIDAY CARD!!

My card starts with a water colored background.  I used Ranger Distress Ink Refills on my Water Media Matt.  I love the built in little cups that I can add drops of ink into for mixing. 
I topped the panel with half of a Doily Circle and some gorgeous Poinsettia Blooms. I inked the flowers in shades of green and aqua using Copic Markers. I like to color the different sections of the design in different shades for a clean modern stained glass look.

To accent the spattered background I added a few gems in different sizes to that some of the splatters are actually little jewels. 
So how about you mix it up too!  Try one of your favorite images in unexpected colors.  It's sure to get your design a second look and hopefully lots of smiles too!  There's a $25 gift card up for grabs so what do you have to loose?

Now it's your turn!!! There are THREE ways to play!

1. Link up your design at the Waffle Flower Blog here
2. Join us on Facebook at the Waffle Flower Garden - just click on MEDIA and then ALBUMS. Click on the album that says FALL FAVORITES and add your photo there.
