Whiff of Joy Challenge ~ Brown & White

Happy Wednesday everyone. I am having one of those weeks….I have a computer virus that is just not going away. I am pretty clueless about how to fix this, so my hubby and his tech guy are working on it. It is contained and quarantined at the moment, they just can’t get rid of it. I am using my son’s computer at the moment. My coffee cup decided to break off at the handle this morning….while I was holding it! ACK! I had coffee all down my hand, my left-side and over the whole floor. I actually had quick enough reflexes to catch the cup as it was falling….so no broken ceramic to add to the mess! I made an apple-cake and the entire top half remained stuck to the cake pan….looked awful. I pried it out, stuck it all back on and drenched it in icing. The crew were too busy scoffing it down to notice how horrible it looked! Oh….and I spilt an entire box of  lasagne noodles on the floor. They pretty much all broke. What a silly, silly day.

Anyhoo…..here is my card for the Whiff of Joy challenge which is to use a color palette of brown & white.

001 copy

I colored up this sweet image Christmas Light with Distress Inks using both the inkpads and the markers. I used Twinkling H20 in buttercup to color the glow of the candle as well as the background. I am soooo happy with how the coloration turned out. Since switching to a smaller brush for the more detailed coloring, I am finally achieving the look that I have been wanting.

The paper is from MME Lost & Found Christmas (how did I end up with 3 packs?), the silk ribbon is from Whiff of Joy as is the brad. I used the Whiff of Joy snowflake trio and some felt to create the snowflakes. I love the soft texture of the felt! The lace ribbon is from Stampin’ Up.

There is still one more week to join in the Whiff of Joy challenge. Here is the post. The prize is a fabulous gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp.

Have a great day…and wish me luck..only a few hours and I can go to bed and wake up to a brand new day!
