Challenge Title: I Can't Believe It's Over
Hostess: Understandblue aka Lydia
Keyword: HYCCT1331C
Date: Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Every year when we get to this point, I just keep saying to myself - "I can't believe it's over."

Well just 32 days ago, I was saying the same thing before I watched the season finale of my beloved, beloved favorite TV show - Breaking Bad, created, written and produced by Vince Gilligan.

One of the coolest things about this show was that the writers very subtly wove color theory into the plot of the show. Every item of clothing the characters wore was a symbol of the "team" they were on. If they started to move towards another character's team, their clothing and their environments would change to reflect that - and become a color that was a mix of those two teams.

<dl><dd>"I want to do the color timing for each of these episodes where you sit with the colorist and make sure that the color of each individual scene is just the way you want it." </dd><dd>―Vince Gilligan, IndieWire interview, July 2012</dd></dl>
It was SUCH a cool part of the show for an arty chick like me, so of course it inspired my challenge today.

What I want you to do is create a black and white card, with just a pop of one of the colors listed below - indicating your "team." you do not have to know anything about the show or these characters to play - you just have to pick one of these six colors for your pop.

1) Green (Team Walt)
2) Purple (Team Marie)
3) Brown (Team Hank)
4) Pink (Team Holly)
5) Blue - (Team Skyler)
6) Yellow - (Team Jesse)

I can't wait to see what you do with this! It will be interesting to see which "team" has the most cards!

A little trivia about my samples - the images on my Breaking Bad cards are stamps that I hand carved. The cards were a little gift set that I put in as a first to find prize for a Breaking Bad themed puzzle geocache I placed. If you are a fellow geocacher, we have a forum for that! :)

I have never watched that show...I don't understand about the teams, I have no idea who those people are.
How do I do this challenge? Just pick a color I like? :confused:

coffeestamper 10-31-2013 03:36 PM

I have never watched either but what I am gathering it has to be mostly black/white and a touch of one of the team colors...Like if I wanted to do a touch of pink I would be on team holly...is that right?

Greywolf 10-31-2013 03:39 PM

Lydia, I can't believe it's almost over either. It has been a busy, fun, fast October. I never heard of that show either, but I like black and white cards with a pop of color. Just have to decide on a color. :)

Clownmom 10-31-2013 03:40 PM

I can't believe HYCCT is over!!! I didn't know anything about Breaking Bad -- I just picked a color I like. Here is my final card:

Skyler in Lancaster

muzbysmom 10-31-2013 03:49 PM

Never even heard of this show! Guess I've been living on some other planet. I'm at a Halloween event st church but will get my last 2013 HYCCT card made either later tonight or tomorrow morning. Then off to the Queens thread!

One4Joy 10-31-2013 03:51 PM

Thank you Coffeestamper...I decided to just pick pink and hope I'm not a bad guy Hahahaha!! LOL!

stamp300 10-31-2013 04:00 PM

WOW! I can't believe it's coming to an end either. I have so much fun doing these challenges. I don't know anything about the TV show, although picking the colors shouldn't be to hard for me.
After trick or treating I'll be able to create.

bfinlay 10-31-2013 04:04 PM

Love, love, love doing a pop of colour against black and white...here's my Team Jesse card:

Breaking Bad..I'm a FAN..sad it's over, too! I chose blue so I'm on Team Skyler.

Chair-ished

gl1253 10-31-2013 05:38 PM

I chose team Pink, but I would have been more familiar with Team Edward:) I had fun with this challenge because I love anything black and white! Thanks for the challenge! So sad it's done for the year. Now I have to figure out how to download, copy and paste! I have no clue. Lydia has helped some, but I keep losing my copy.

My husband and I loved watching Breaking Bad and though it was sad to see it end, it ended well. I also can't believe October flew by so fast.

Crafty Julia 10-31-2013 07:03 PM

HYCCT1331C Thanks To You
 
Lydia- awesome challenge to end a month of making cards for others :)
I am team #1 green - my only color other than black and white. I used SU's Wonderful Woodcuts for its medieval quality of its image- added a dc heart panel and some ties. The white portion of the card is affixed to the black background with mini brads, so it opens like a small book. Here's Thanks To You

JBgreendawn 10-31-2013 07:28 PM

this is a link to my sample it is a team walt with the bit of green on it... ( no idea if I picked the worst character or not haha) :)

Not part of the Breaking Bad phenomenon so I just randomly picked brown based on an idea I had to make a coffee themed card. Thanks again Lydia for all your hard work this month!
