White with one

Sounds like the answer to 'How do you have your coffee?' I know, but today White With One is the challenge at Sparkles Forum. The challenge is to use white + one other colour on your creation. You can colour your image with whatever colours you like, but your card needs to be just white and one other colour. Here is my DT work for the challenge:


Recipe
Copics used:
Fox: YR02, YR04, YR07
Grass: G02
Embossing: Sizzix Flowers
Stamp: Fox from Woodland Folk "Home Sweet Home" set
DP: Sassafrass "Woo + Woo"
Ribbon, brads and flowers from my stash of goodies


I think it's fairly obvious what my one other colour is!

Sadly I made this card for a friend of mine who had to put her beloved cat to sleep last week. As an animal lover who lost a dog a couple of years ago, I know exactly how it feels to lose such a beloved family member. I wanted her to know I understood, and that my thoughts were with her. People give sympathy cards when people die, but it's not often animals are perceived as highly. I will forever treasure the card I received from my good friend Linda when my Lady passed away, hopefully Bethany feels the same about this one.

I've never actually made a card using such few colours, but I really like the look of it. I might have to do more like this one - and I do love using this little fox so any excuse will do.
