I'm no Olympian when it comes to doing that many colors, nor can I be accused of being an over achiever, so I went for the silver medal by using the Brilliant Blue and Brocade Blue colors from the Olympic colors---with a hint of silver matting---for my Olympic trees (trees courtesy of Rubbernecker in the Kittie Kits Cause a Scene set). After I stamped them, I covered them in clear embossing powder to bring out the richness in their color.
Now, there's another side to this story, see. Da Muddermark (aka Mothermark) has her Teapot Tuesday challenge up, too, you see and it seems Abner, the Abominable Snowman is desperately in need of a splash of color in his life. He is sick of white, white, white. You can get the full story on da Mudder's blog.
Now, da Mudder didn't want us to overwhelm Abner with too much color nor were we to put snowflakes, divinity, or vanilla milkshakes on our card, but Bertie convinced me that a few snowflakes were needed in the background for my Olympic theme. You see, the tea partiers are getting free snowboarding lessons today, so I definitely want us to have some snow to board on! Yeah! Hang ten, dude....oh, wait, that's surfer talk.
Okay, so if you're still with me in this story, the other reason that Bertie wanted me to add the snowflakes is cuz she was traumatized as a child when she first watched Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer and that skeery ol' Abominable Snowman came on the television screen. Bertie figures he needs some niceness knocked into that thick, furry skull of his. When ol' Abner sees these snowflakes while learning to do the Loopy de Loop in his snowboarding lessons, she says he's sure to get real mad, flub up on his Loopy de Loop technique, and fly right into these blue Olympian trees. She says it serves him right for skeering all the little kiddies in the world with his meanness. But, more importantly, mebbe it'll knock some niceness into him
So anyway, why not come along and join all the colorers and tea partiers in these challenges today? I'm sure there'll be about 42,000 of us having a great deal of fun!
Be there or be square!
