DCM little Extra - Black & ONE colour

This weeks little extra at
is to use Black and ONE other colour only.
We, the design team decided to be really nice to you all and allow shades of that one colour to make it really easy for you ! (see aren't we nice to you ?).

So this is what I came up with Predictable colour for me I guess for me...
but hey.. go with what works for you! I reckon.. lol!

Fun bits I've used for my card are - Black card, Fabric from Spotlight, Bumble Bee Crafts Tag, Autmn Leaves Flower stamp, my new Heidi Swap word corner stamp, Stampin Up Aged to Perfection Stamp, Bella Paper flower, Vintage Button, Velvet Print ribbon, Versa black ink, & coloured the flowers with Distress Ink (this is done by stamping onto a plate with your stamp pad then wetting a paintbrush and dipping it into the ink), and my sewing machine.

So have you Dared to DARE yet?...Come on I dare you!!!!
Oh I am a silly duffer, this afternoon at school,
I sprained my ankle,
Not terribly bad, but bad enough to hurt :o(
I guess there's just nothing for it...
but sitting at my craft table... :o)
Only problem is it's my sewing machine foot!!!! :s
guess I'll have to learn to drive my machine with my
left foot...LOL!!!!

Oh Gill :( I've missed so many of your creations the last few days!!
And an extra big :( about your sprained ankle. Hope it isn't hurting too much, I think the Dr would definitely order plenty of rest at the craft table! hehe
And being ambidextrous with your feet could be a handy skill to have ;)

Love all your creations, especially Miss Scarlett and your Jack LO :)

Now, black and one colour...hmmmmm....

This looks great Gillian!

I am sorry you have sprained your ankle :-( Good idea about sitting at your craft table lol. Might have to just get some projects ready and sew them when you're better!

awww, Blogger won't let me see your card. I'll have to shoot over to DCM to check it out.

LOL True creator: Your first thought was your sewing machine pedal...my first thought would be the gas pedal. Rest & create :)

stamp and scrape said...

Hurting your ankle will mean having to rest it - get everyone else to do the work so that you can sit at your work table (with your foot up of course, lol)!
Great card - lovely sepia tones.

Mrs Frizz said...

Hope that your ankle is having a little rest. And I can only hope that you aren't too heavy footed with that left foot on either the gas pedal or the sewing machine pedal.

Sam Morris said...

Shame about the ankle, hope it's better after a good craft ;o) Beautiful creations though!
