Colors of Christmas Challenge

Last time we hosted a color challenge, Shel gave us several colors to use in our art.  I loved the idea so I'm going to do the same thing, only with different colors of course.

Instead of assigning specific colors, I'd like to challenge you to make art using what you perceive to be the colors of Christmas.  This Santa clip art came from The Graphics Fairy and represents the black and white photos that recorded my Christmas celebrations of early childhood.

This angel girl came from The Graphics Fairy.  Some of my favorite memories of Christmas are the colors of black and white photographs that have been hand tinted.
Red and green are probably two of the most common Christmas colors.   This one came from the FDS Altered Christmas kit by Farrah's Designer Scraps.

I made this Christmas card last year with less typical shades of red and green.

This lovely vintage angel has tints of pastel pink and blue.  
Cajoline Scrap is the source for this and other vintage Christmas images.

Rachael's Scraps is where I found this glittery stem.  I don't care what colors are used, I love glitter and it's my favorite crafting material to use at Christmas.
And if all else fails, head over to Pixel Scrapper to snag this free white poinsettia made by Sheila Reid.  Since many have snow this time of year, I think white is something most of us can associate with winter.  Sure, it's not officially a color, but we're flexible here.

 The Colors of Christmas Challenge isn't about religion.  It's simply a way to challenge you to think about colors that you associate with the holiday that is celebrated by many people worldwide.  Feel free to change the word "Christmas" to "December" if you feel it's not something you can work with.  Have fun and I'll look forward to seeing what everyone shares.  Directions are on the sidebar.  Thanks for visiting.
Happy Colorful Creating,
Misplaced Mermaid  (aka Lou Anne)
