Hello … bonjour … and a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to all my American friends! We have a theme for you to play along with at Time Out this fortnight … it’s a colour one … black, white and a spot of colour … with the optional twist of making a one layer card. Here’s where I went with it …
This is an almost one layer card … stamped with an EbyE background in Memento Tuxedo Black … pounced with white to create a sense of lit snowfall … and generously spitzed with Shimmer Spray (which you can’t see!). The little fox, which is also EbyE, was stamped, trimmed out, popped up on foam tape onto the snowy background … and had his glinting eyes dotted with Enamel Accents and his nose coloured red and coated with Glossy Accents. He’s related to Rudolph don’cha know … and aspires to emulate him … though I’m not sure what the other reindeers would say if a fox were to head up the pulling team on Christmas Eve. Guess it’s only Santa knows the answer to that one. The sentiment was typed on a 1960s typewriter (as you can see it has a dual black/red ribbon!) … between the background stamping stage and the attaching of the Rudolph-emulating little fox. How will you interpret our Black, White, Plus One Colour theme … and will you use our optional twist? We’d love to see what you create in our gallery. This fortnight, we’re sponsored by Happy Little Stampers … there’ll be a random winner of a $20 gift certificate for the store, drawn from those who use the optional twist. As usual, our overall winner, as voted for by the DT, will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with heaps of inspiration from our brilliant DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Joanna from Jo-Jo’s Spot. Why not pop over and have a visit with Joanna … there’s so much fantastic and varied inspiration on display … you’ll have a splendid time … and you can always say hello while you’re there!
