No red or green....

is the challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  Here is my entry, a design I've done before, but this time I used hot pink and turquoise. 


I just adore this Penny Black bird from a clear set called Jolly Friends!  I colored him with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits to blend, then diecut around him using a labels one die, shading the background with broken china distress ink. I added a little glitter on his hat. That panel was framed in hot pink and then placed on a spellbinder's Fleur de Lis pendant, which I think looks like a snowflake.  I thought the sentiment was perfect for his perkiness and also for the choice of colors.

Supplies: hot pink, turquoise, and white cardstocks, Penny Black  30-058 Jolly Friends, Hero Arts CL460 Joy to All, Versafine onyx black and Versamark inks, white embossing powder, Nestabilities Label One die, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis pendant die, Prismacolor pencils, mineral spirits, glue pen and prisma glitter
