Reminder Post for Challenge #11 2013, Black and White with a Tiny amount of your favorite color.

Welcome to the midway reminder of Quirky Craft's,  Black and White with a Tiny amount of color. You can find here some more gorgeous examples from our team, and of course, do not forget the amazing prizes from our generous sponsors for this challenge:

First Place
Crafty RibbonsVoucher worth £10 excluding postage.

Second Place 
3 Limited Runs Digis

Third Place
3 Robyn´s Fetish Digis

I made a shadow box card with the Owl Theo digi. I distressed white cardstock with black ink and then sprinkled with white Perfect Pearls diluted in water. For the owl I used a paper piecing technique and  a little bit of yellow colour added to give light to its eyes. As everybody knows owls are always related to wisdom, so Theo´s advise is " Be wise" 

My card for this week it is very simple. I use as a base card a .studio cut file. I also use twigs from 3 Little Pigs LSHD file . I made the central part of the card I painting two digi  Whootie Owl courtesy of  our generous sponsor Limited Runs .  As  an additional color, I used  red ribbon with white little dots.

I used Mushrooms 7 and a Whootie Owl for my card, with Papermania double sided papers, using both sides matted. I added some polka dot ribbon. It may get a greeting added at some stage too.

Card made using Mushrooms 7.

There may be more examples added later on......watch this space!

Yes, here I am.... right image this time!! Did this all on the computer. I fixed the digi image (Mushrooms 7) over my own paper, coloured in the red bits, printed it on the thickest card my printer would take, cut to size, folded it in half, hey presto, the fastest card I think I've ever made! Then added corner peel offs!  Don't forget if you have a digi form Limited Runs go and enter it into Nikki's Challenge HERE (where back dating is allowed!)
