Less is more week 14 - Colour challenge - white on white

Well white on white for this weeks Less is More eh!  Only done a card like this once some time ago, but have always liked the concept.  The card I'd made I'd inked for definition as well, and I didn't want to either post that (it's never been on my blog, just on my DoCrafts gallery) and didn't want to just re-make it without the inking, so have gone for something different.

Not so much blathering this week, as I am in a bit of a rush to get little one from nursery, but really wanted to get this posted.  I'm pretty sure I've kept to the rules, as even tho there is a stamped image (I finally got to use one of my character stamps - yay!) I have only embossed it.  Admittedly there are shades of white - is that OK Mandi / Chrissie?

I will get round to everyones blogs tonight, or tomorrow I hope.  My house is really suffering with all this blogging I've been doing and I really must do some housework.  You can't see the shelves for the dust!

Enjoy!

PS. Tell you what tho, my dining room (where I craft) looks like it's snowed with all the white card I've got through!!
Card one:

 A detail shot:

 Card two:


Card one is: stamped image; Gossmere by Christie Coll for Stamping Bella; stamped background 'I AM' script by Stamping Bella.  Both embossed with pearl white embossing powder.  The frame is from the Pampered Pets range by DoCrafts and I just cut out the middle and 3d mounted it around the embossed image.

Card two is:  the same frame again this time cut out and mounted around a piece of white pearl card embossed with the Cuttlebug 'Texture' embossing folder and the sentiment is from the 'With Love' set.  The die is one Marianne Creatables Style two butterfly.  I also embossed two lines around the sentiment to hide the folder marks.

Both great cards. I'm going to have a go at making a card for the 'Less is More'challenge. I have never done white on white before, so should be fun! xx

Both of these cards are gorgeous. I like the stamped image in the first - the pearl embossing has a lovely shimmer. But I really like the second card - so much texture there! Lovely!

Susan said...

i'm not normally a fan of the stamp(s) you used and embossed but in WoW she becomes quite special thank you for showing us something so different. White heat embossing is something a little extra special. And then your second card wonderful. XOXO Zoe
