Only two colours!!!?

Morning everyone,

Well it's Friday again.  I would say 'Thank goodness' but I'm not looking forward to this one.  I've got a dentist appointment (oh joy!).  Nothing major, just a routine check-up followed by a clean and polish but I'm still not happy about going.  
So, I'd better get on with things, I don't want to be late now do I. (I'd rather not go actually!)

It's Twinchie time again.  For those who don't know, a Twinchie is a 2 inch x 2 inch work of 'ART'  You can put what you like on there, just so long as it fits in with the rules, (there's not many) and the challenge theme of course.
Over at Show Us Your Twinchies  it's challenge #10 ............ Use Two Colours

What! Only two.  It seems like most of what I've done recently has been nothing but colours, and lots of them.  So, I've put all the bright coloured inks to one side and gone with my trusty Stormy Sky Distress Ink and Onyx Black Versafine.
The stamps are from a mini re-mountable set from Clarity and are a perfect size for this job. (I know Santa normally has eight reindeer, but they wouldn't all fit!)

I started by making a mask for the moon, then brushed Stormy Sky DI over the top half of the card.  I then spritzed with a little water, and dabbed a paper towel over the top to remove some of the ink to give the effect of a snowy sky.
Santa and the forest were just stamped in black, with a couple of the trees stamped a second time.  I hope this is still within the rules of  use 2 colours - it's still just black and blue. (I know there's white on there too, but that's the card).  I'm sure someone will let me know if it's not.

As it's Friday, it's my day to post on the DT blog over at Creative Studios.  Better get over there hadn't I!
Here's a sneaky peek at my project for this week ............
We've all been playing (oops! I mean working) with felt this week.  Pop over to the Blog and see what the rest of the DT have been creating.

Well, time is getting on, I'd better get a move on.
Not only do I have the dentist to cope with today, but Stephen's boss is coming for dinner tonight - eeek!  I only found out when he came home from work yesterday. 
When I get back this afternoon, it's straight into the kitchen for me - no crafting today I'm afraid.  I really need to tidy the house too!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a lovely weekend - mines going to be spent in the craft room I think.

Bye for now
