WOW

***This card was a Top 3 Winner at Card Crafter's Circle***

Due to the apparent lack of outside "white stuff" here in upstate New York, I made a "White on White" card for the challenge at Card Crafters CircleWe challenge you to create a card that is WHITE .... layers of white... colour is allowed on your image, all the rest is to be white!



Cuttlebug, Spellbinders, PTI and MFT supplied the tools necessary to create this marvelously layered card. Who knew that white on white could have so much texture? The image is a stamp from Prickly Pear and it was colored with Copic markers.




To add a little more eye appeal the smaller scalloped oval was sprayed with a Perfect Pearl and water mixture before it was embossed. Ultra fine glitter was applied on the edges of the small oval and on one doily edge.

Love this technique!!! I  have a new fondness for things that are 'white' as long as they stay on cards and not on the ground outside my home!

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

I love this! WOW is so pretty. You've really made a statement with all the layering, die cuts and embossing here. It's a stunner. We may be getting some real white stuff this afternoon (hoping it doesn't come).

Gorgeous layers of white on white Marie! I've never done one of these, you've inspired me!

You might get a touch of the frozen white stuff today. We have tiny little snowflakes fluttering about here in Ohio ~ maybe it's headed to you ;)

This card is absolutely gorgeous, and I much prefer that kind of white stuff over the outside kind (grin). You've done a magnificent job with the various layers. Quite stunning. Thank you for entering it in this week's challenge at Card Crafter's Circle. I'm glad we were able to inspire you.
