Ruby's Rainbow: White Plus One Other Color Challenge


Good morning!  I was lucky to be asked to join the Ruby's Rainbow Design Team; today will be my first official challenge!  White plus one other color....

As I was trying to decide what to do, I realized that it would be hard to color an image without using other colors...at least neutrals....  So I opted to go with some paper piecing.  I pulled out one of my favorites to paper piece...the PTI onesie from Bitty Baby Blessings.  I stamped it with Smokey Shadow to get a softer look.  If you look closely, you will see that there's a bit of subtle glitter on the banded edges.  I added a embossed background and a button tied with satin ribbon.  I think I will whip up a few more of these...they would be good to have on hand....

Stamp: PTI Bitty Baby Blessings
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Pink Pirouette, PTI Bitty Dot Basics DP
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow, SU! Going Gray Marker
Embellies: PTI Sweet Blush Button, White Satin Ribbon (my stash), Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Dimensionals

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Celebrations
Craft Your Days Away: Paper Piecing  
Craft Your Passion: Paper Piecing

Ladybug Crafts Ink: Pink and Girly

I invite you to take a look at the Ruby's Rainbow blog to check out the rest of the DT's creations.  Our challenge will run for the next fortnight and I would love to see your take on the theme....

Thanks for stopping by!
