Without Words (DT) October Challenge

Morning all, and welcome to 1st October!  Autumn is well and truly underway, Christmas is just around the corner ...... but what the heck, it's time for the second WITHOUT WORDS challenge!

Thank you all so much for joining in our launch challenge in September, you really did have fun with colour, and we have seen some amazing quality work.

So, are you ready for your new fun colour challenge?  This month our theme is THINGS THAT GO BUMP, so think magic, think mystery, think spooky - we are looking for darker colours, the purples, blues, reds, blacks .... it seemed like a good idea when I thought of this theme, and then realised that these are not the easiest colours to work with but hey, nothing should stop you as we all know how much talent is out there in blogland!  And please please please remember, a CAS card with minimal embellishments.

The design team have had a ball with this one and created the most amazing works of art for you to drool over, so please, if you get chance, it'd be nice to show your appreciation.  One of the images took four hours to colour.  Four hours!  And all done for you.

Here is what I did:

I just love this ultra CAS style of card, it's simplicity really appeals, but that's probably because I'm a simple squirrel, lol.

I've used Hazel from Whimsy/Wee Stamps (by Sylvia Zet) and painted her in Distress Inks (ReInkers).  The sentiment by Hero Arts is stamped in Grape Jelly Memento and the purple shiny spots are Papermania.




So, on your marks, get set, off you go - challenge runs until 6.00pm (UK time) on 30 October.

Hugs, Sxx

Awwww, I want a pet bat! Not sure how the cats would feel about that, probably very happy too, but not for the right reasons. Love this Squirrel. Gorgeous image, beautifully coloured.

Now, I'm glad you clarified what you meant by 'Things that go Bump' because I was on completely the wrong track and it could have proved VERY embarrassing! Still, now I know that has been averted. Your card is just stunning - all the DT cards are just awesome this month. Your colouring is fab and the image is gorgeous. I'm too embarrassed to turn out another hideous effort. But, I will admire those that do it well! Hugs, Jayne (aka the fairy with her mind in the gutter!) xxxxxxxxxxxx
