What a dipstick!!

Well last night caused me some panic I can tell you!!
I had read the new challenge over at Paper Crafting Journey as Monochrome. Well it isn't Monochrome, and here was me with a lovely card, all done and dusted, and it was wrong!!!! And I didnt realise until late last night!!
So a frantic re-do of the card, and I managed to mess up a couple of times, but boy was I stressed!

The Challenge is ACTUALLY BLACK and One Other Colour, but Skin tones are allowed, where needed!
I had done this one in red originally, which I will post later, as it is lovely, but here's my Black and white version!

The Challenge this week is sponsored by Louby Loo, and I am introducing Chef Luigi and you can get him as a transparent digi, or coloured.
So I used a Papermania Birthday Cake stamp, with some Tim Holtz distress ink, Black soot, and some clear embossing powder, on some coated cardstock. It helps to keep the ink wet for embossing when using something like Distress inks, as the ink doesnt soak into the fibres and dry too quickly to the powder to stick.
The I printed Luigi off onto some paper, and used black promarker for his clothing. As skin tones are allowed, I was able to used Almond, Pastel Pink, and Blush for his face and hands. I then cut him out, and placed him on the top of the cake.
the sentiment was printed from my pc, and I punched 2 holes through the sentiment, and used foam pads to raise it slightly. Some black gems for the corners, some Crystal accents for the boots, moustache, and hat, and mount it all onto some Black A4 card, scored down its length.
 A CAS card, and I hope you like it, lol, though I do prefer the red personally, and I'll post it later, so no one gets confused lol, like I did!
Dont forget the challenge over at Paper Crafting Journey is Black and one other colour, not Monochromatic!!
Have fun guys and girls, xxx
