Black, white and a dash of something ....

... the challenge over at Less is More - LIM101 this week is a colour challenge.  The ladies have picked

BLACK & WHITE with a dash of ANY other COLOUR

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Carry On (Hostess set); PTI - Scattered Showers, Scattered Showers Additions
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Versamark; Memento - London Fog, Tuxedo Black, LadyBug Pen
Dies: PTI - Scattered Showers Dies, Canvas & Linen Impression Plate; Spellbinders - Rectangles Lg (S4-132) #3
Accessories: Card and gems from stash

There really is only a dash of colour on my card - and you have to look closely!!  I knew that I wanted to use the "Keep Calm and Carry On" sentiment so I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and embossed with white powder and then cut it out with a rectangular Spellbinder die.  I cut a black mat and white mat - embossing the white with my new linen impression plate.  Using the second impression of London Fog, I stamped some raindrops across the top of the panel.  I cut out the umbrella shape and stamped the solid black umbrella top in Versafine and embossed with clear powder, then I coloured the stitched line with red and added a couple of red gems.

When it's wet and grey and cold you need to keep calm and carry on, and on the inside of the card I stamped a fun sentiment to go with the umbrella image.

That's all for now - I'll be back tomorrow with my second card for CR84FN69!  See you then.

we definately need to do that in Yorkshire - we had our wettest year since records began in 2012 and apparently we're set for a wet winter too :-(
Great card - love the teeny-tiny hint of colour too.

The umbrella is just gorgeous Deborah and I love the tiny zing of red. I'm pretty good at carrying on but it's the keeping calm that's the real trick! Vicky x
