OLW 76: Color in Winter

This Wednesday's challenge over at Simplicity's blog was to create a single layer, grey and white card with a pop of color.  Some weeks when I read the new challenge I know exactly what I want to do (now whether it actually happens is another thing!), and some weeks I am lost in the weeds.  This was one of those weeks.  But, yesterday as I was rummaging around my flower drawers (stamp drawers!) I saw this awesome Penny Black image and immediately thought of masking out a portion of it to nestle in a sentiment.  Sentiment by Saavy.  Made the oval mask with a SU oval punch.  Had the card done in 15 minutes.  Taking a picture has taken much longer.  It is cloudy and dreary here today and 4 Ott lights just aren't doin' it for me!  Sorry for the poor quality image.


Thanks for peeking!

Lovely card Carol. Like how you used the oval to mask an area for your sentiment. Wouldn't of thought of that.

That's a gorgeous stamp Carol and I love how you've added the pop of colour :)
These winter days are not good for photos...even with the right lights!

Another lovely card. I like your idea of masking the stamp to make a place for the words. Never thought of that . Such a clever idea.
