Just Add Ink #368..."Add a Twist"

Happy Friday folks!...It's almost the weekend...Yay! I hope you all have some fun things planned and find time to get creative..:0)

We have a fun new challenge happening over at Just Add Ink. This week Kelly has suggested we create a Christmas project using a Birthday set! l had just ordered the super cute "Happiest of Days" set and it has this super cute present image, l decided that was where l was headed.
I kept it CAS and let the vibrant pressie colours pop! These were coloured using the retired Blendabilities in the Cherry Cobbler and Wasabi colours.
I added some highlights using the Signo White gel pen and also added a couple of dots using the Ranger enamel Accents and SU Gold Details....Probably should have left well enough alone though, as the very last dot gave a cough and splutter as it came out and caused a rather odd shape..:0(
The Christmas sentiment was created with white E/P and the Labeler Alphabet.

The rest of the team have created some fabulous projects with heaps of inspiration using Birthday sets for Christmas, so make sure you pop over and check those out.

Thanks for stopping by!
All supplies are Stampin Up! unless noted.
