Hang on there – it’s all white!

The challenge this week at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is to KEEP IT SIMPLE … NO DP ALLOWED,1 EMBELLISHMENT ONLY!For full details on how to play along and be in for the chance to win please click on the link.While you’re there take a look at the DT’s and GD’s  fabulous creations for some inspiration.

This challenge really gives you something to think about.It’s so easy just to grab something from your favourite paper pack and raid your embellie stash.And if your anything like me you’ve probably got a lorry load of ’em too.I found the most difficult part just using one embellishment.

White-on-white cards seem to be on trend ATM so I thought I’d try my hand at one.Here I’ve used the adorable  Hanging On from Digi Doodle Shop and used Promarkers to colour with a touch of Glossy Accents on the eyes and nose.To create more interest I embossed the base card too.Because the folder was narrower than the card I turned it over and scored the edges for a neater finish.I had a tough decision over choosing my one embellishment tho’!!I originally embossed another piece of white card and attached a cute jingly bell but didn’t think it looked quite right so swapped for a piece of an old belt,with some holes punched,to represent a cat’s collar.I would’ve loved to add the bell to this but it wouldn’t be setting a good example for everyone else would it?!!
