The No Colour Gang

Hello.  Welcome.  It Mothers Day in Norway today.  Gratulerer Med Dagen Mor.  It makes me laugh, cos now I am all international, I end up celebrating this a few times.  You just assume everyone is celebrating this on the same day all around the globe.  That's what I call the Normal Syndrome.  Everything you do is normal.  It's just what all them other folk are doing is not!!  Everybody's normal is different.  Hugz

Over at DRS the challenge this week is White Out.  A single colour for stamping or layering but no colouring.  I have rolled out the Jimbo and the Gang stamp again and, looking back at previous posts (click on the DRS label), I see this is actually a technique I favour with this stamp.  It's a beautiful image, full of interest, not too busy, perfect for the no colour technique. 

I stamped DRS Jimbo and the Gang and layered with an orange mat.  Quick, simple, cute anyday card. 

The same, but slightly different.  

I am sure the combinations are endless.  Going to add these to a few more simple cards I have for a mothers day gift.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
