It's all white

Good morning blogworld

Ha, my jokes just get better and better don't they!  No don't answer that - really don't!!

So I'm slightly stunned today as school is back and I had to get up at 6.20 and out the house, with SWMbO in tow of course, by 8.05.  We almost did it, we made it out by 8.15!

And now the house is very quiet - apart from hubby has a new computer and I'm blocking my ears to the air turning blue.  Although he is entitled to have a new comp - he had a version of Windows that is no longer being supported so the old comp must be at least 14 years old.

Anyways, waffle, waffle, waffle - you know me!

The real reason for me being here is that I'm still guesting over at Papertake Weekly and this week the challenge is 'White plus 1' so all we want you to do is to use white as your base colour and then use one more colour as well.

This can be different shades of your chosen colour and it doesn't include hair and skin if you are using images. 

There is a fabulous prize on offer and, as always, wonderful inspiration from the Design Team.

This is my effort:

Her close up:

I used:

Rubber stamp:
Kanban: Urban Belles - Birthday
coloured with my ProMarkers


Anything else:
Embossing folders
Yellow card
Craftwork Cards - sentiment
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers
3d gloss on the buttons on the image

I'm not entirely sure about the colouring of this one.  I like the hair, but the face and white, hmmmm.  But the good news is that I'm trying to be adventurous and try new things - like the face and colouring white.  More practice required??

Righty ho, I'm away again, but I will be back soon.  


A challenge, or two:

Crafting when we can: Challenge 67 - Ribbon/Twine/Washi Tape - mine is ribbon

Crafting from the heart: Challenge 15

The Craft Bloggers Network: Die cuts or embossing

She's gorgeous Sarah, I've been playing with yellow over the weekend...must be something in the air!! What fabulous daisies and the embossing looks wonderful. Bet it's Windows 8 that's causing the blue air!! Hubby updated his laptop a few months ago, well, I almost left him!! All is well now though, he and his laptop are on far better terms so there is hope!! xx

Hmmmm you brought back memories of Michael Barrymore with his 'all white....?'! Of course, I don't really remember him... hehe!

Well I love your colouring even if you're not sure, I think you have the face spot on... and this image looks so good with just the white and the yellow splash.. oooh and WOW to the hair colouring too!
