Midnight Madness.

By chance I found a website called priscillastyles which has a challenge called Midnight Madness. I liked the look of the sketch so I thought I would have a try! Having just finished a card which was white on white I decided that black would be good. I thought of Dovecraft "Hint of Pink". But some of it is a bit grey so instead I went for this Doodlebug Designs Black Swirl which is gorgeous. ( I also have it in white.) I used my nesties to cut out a white rectangle and a black scalloped rectangle. I watercoloured the image which is from Clarity Stamps. Brads, ribbons and flowers are from my stash. The only fiddly bit was making the brads and ribbon look as if it was a hanger for the image. I think it is not too bad lol. I'm quite pleased to have posted two cards today even though I just had to finish the white one. I think I work faster with colours I like. I don't have to think so hard!
Now I am off to think what to do next. I haven't done my Sugar Bowl card yet or Whiff of Joy or Truly Scrumptious!! I need to try to get ahead as I'm working full time next week and I'll only have evenings and Wednesday afternoon and then I'm visiting my daughter and family at the weekend - after they move house on Friday (while I have to work).


  1. Love the ribbon hanger!! You have been busy today, I'm just off to make a start hoping to combine a few challenges??

  3. Hi Kat, What a pretty card! The background DP and the stamps matches so well :) I agree about how much faster card making is when you use colors you like! Thanks for participating this week, we hope to see you at the next one, xox~Jeni & MMSC DT

  4. That is so pretty. I don't remember seeing the color combo black and purple like this before. It is beautiful. Thank you so much for playing with us at the MMSC this week.

  6. Hi Lilackat, your entry this week is just so beautiful..I love purple :)..I really like the contrast of the white and black and the dp is pretty as well as those flowers.I can just go on and on LOL. It all works perfectly. Thank you so much for playing our sketch challenge. I for one, look forward to the viewing the entries each week. I get so much inspiration and ideas from our players. Please think of some friends that you know that do not play our challenges, because we are going to have a "Refer a Friend" challenge coming soon with extra prizes ;) we are always trying to keep it fresh at the Midnight Madness challenge blog.
