Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge #38

Happy Aloha Friday!!

Today starts a new challenge over at the Aloha Friday Challenges at Kitty Bee Designs.  This will be the LAST challenge of 2014 so hopefully we'll have a ton of you joining.  The theme is pretty easy...

**Create a Christmas card or project using non-traditional Christmas colors (Red & Green)
Challenge closes Friday, Dec. 19th and winners will be posted on Sunday, Dec 21st.

Our amazing sponsor for this challenge is:
Handmade Harbour

Stop by the blog for all the details on the challenge and the prize up for grabs.  While you're there make sure to check out what the rest of the Bees created and leave them some love.  Oh my they outdid themselves for this challenge!!  Yep, they sure did! :)  Here is my project:

Kitty Bee Christmas tags

They are Christmas tags colored using non-traditional colors.  Featuring some of the adorable Kitty Bee Design images, including some of the new images, you can find in the Etsy store.  I got these as digital images and shrunk them all down to fit on to a sheet of cardstock.  I colored each one with Copics, some you'll see with traditional colors, but then I added a non-traditional color to match the challenge guidelines.

Here are a couple close-ups:

Tags set #1

FYI, I used 2 Copic markers and a white gel pen to create the Santa hat on the panda above.

Tags set #2

You'll probably see a few non-Christmassy images, thought I would add them for fun.  I learned that if you have the right sentiment, it doesn't matter if your image does not match, it's all in the presentation.  That also includes the color scheme.  hahaha!

These already have a home as I sent them as part of our 1st annual KBD DT swap to my swap partner, Michelle Nutter from Just a Nutter Stamper.

I hope you'll play with us for our last challenge of 2014.  If not for the prize then definitely for fun. :D  Well time to sign off.  Have a great Aloha Friday and a wonderful weekend!!  Mahalo for stopping by!

These are adorable. I like the non traditional colours. Also, they are a reminder that I don't have any of the tags for the Christmas presents yet. *eeek* Better get to work.
Hugs! xx
