So I stumbled across a site - About A Boy and thought I would have a go at their mid-month Challenge - White + one colour.
Here is my take on the challenge:
For the first time I took a couple of pictures as I went:
I started with a 12x12 piece of white cardstock and using a brick stencil I used vaseline to cover the stencil. I then painted the entire cardstock in black paint:
Once the paint was dry I wiped off the vaseline and was left with the white brickwork. Although I was going for a black and white theme it seems a little bright, so I added some crinkled tissue paper over the top with modpodge.
I made the tag using a 6x6 brick stencil and white distress stain on black cardstock. Once dry I went around the edges of the bricks with a white pen to highlight it more. The ribbon I stamped with a brickwork stamp and wet and crinkled it to dry.
I made the clock with a die and the large gear is a Dusty Attic chipboard which I painted black and attached a piece of white cardstock behind.
While I was looking around the About a Boy blog I noticed they had a DT call. Check it out:
Thanks for looking
