So let's go and see what the Design Team have made - the DT have used these colours as inspiration

Nikky...Gold and silver snowman? Tricky! ...
But not really if you take advantage of all the white space and really keep to a few colour tones to keep it simple.
My image is Mr Snowman here. I used 9500,9501, 9502, 9503, 9505 for the silver and the snowman and the snow itself, and 1210, 1230, 1250, 3150 for the gold. PLUS my Graph'It Shake white pen which is a real musthave for me, i can't live without this pen, in fact I have about 10 lol. I'd have liked a little more shimmer and shine on his coat and tie and I wish now in retrospect I'd used a Warm or pink grey over the gold as it would have made it more bronze but he's looking cool in his gold finery I think.

Scatty Jan I love Christmas although the day I chose to make my tag it was so very hot and sunny it did not seem right. For my tag I used the cute image Candy Elf B, you can find him in the store right here. After I had coloured up I gave my tag a little spray of iridescent sparkle in real life it really has come alive
