The Stampman Challenge - Take Two Colours

Morning all, thought I would have a go at the challenge over at The Stampman Challenge Blog, which this time is to use two colours in your artwork.  So this week................
......I have made a quick Christmas card using the colours blue and white.    I have used the Winter Birds by Inkadinkado which I have simply stamped onto an area of Gesso painted directly onto a blue card.  I have added ribbon and snowflakes to complete.
Thought I would make a second card for my collection this time using red, the difference a colour change makes.  Pop over to The Stampman Challenge Blog to see some great artwork and to find all the details re the challenge.  See you over there, Tracy x

Both cards are stunning, Tracy! It's amazing to see how different colours can change the feel of the card....Love them! x

I love birds too, Tracy and these images are very useful and not just for Christmas.
I like the way you have set them off against a white background- very effective.

How lovely and totally different they look when you use a different color. I also like the technique and resulting effects.

Love these. Now I'm usually a pink girl and don't use much blue but the blue one is by far my favourite here!
