Red and Mint Green with Tessa

Red and mint green have been a favorite holiday palette of mine for a long time. Paired with the black and gold of this inspiration photo, these colors are a beautiful take on traditional Christmas hues.

I decided to make a necklace, something I might wear to a holiday party this year. I combined fabric flowers that I made myself with a pendant made with the Chip Art tool and a bird cabochon from the Sweet Surrender collection:

I stamped my initial and three doves (for my three boys) into the chipboard disc that came with the necklace. To match the color palette, I spray painted both the chipboard and the setting gold.

I love how the bird cabochon looks like it's landing in a nest of red satin and beads.

I have already added Chip Art inspired jewelry to my Christmas gift list and can't wait to experiment with more materials. The possibilities are endless and the Chip Art tools are so easy to use. Whether you combine them with the color palette that inspired me or go in your own direction, your creation will be well-received. Thanks for stopping by today!
