White and one other colour over at A Spoonful of Sugar!

(Please scroll down for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday DT post)

It's time for a new challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar and this week we are challenging you to 'white and one other colour' - yep, you read that right, not black and white and one other colour!  I was a bit scared when I saw this myself but you are allowed to use colours on skin, shoes, etc - as long as the main colours are white and one other colour!  Here is my take on it...

 
 

Aren't they the cutest?!  These are from the Larakins range of The Emerald Faerie Garden called 'Ashton & Boo' - I love them!  I got mine in digi form (here) but you can buy them in stamp form too. And how about the paper?  This is a digi one I recently got from Cupcake Cards & Crafts called 'shabby stripes' - it comes in 16 colours and only costs £2.50, such great value!  Now, I love my branded DPs and no doubt will continue buying them, but I find these digi paperss are very useful basics!

I am entering this into Emerald Faerie's first ever challenge for anything goes and also the following challenges:


That's it from me today - have a great week!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cupcake Cards & Crafts called 'shabby stripes'
Stamps: The Emerald Faerie Garden 'Ashton & Boo', Ladybug Crafts Ink sentiment
Mediums: Aqua ProMarkers
Accents: ribbon and pearls from stash

Tools: Martha Stewart border punches, Stampin Up large window punch, My Favorite Things rolled rose and leaf dies, Nestability rectangle die inside card
