Feeling All White

Geddit? ;)
 
All White (or no patterned paper) is the theme of the new challenge starting at the One Stitch At A Time blog today.
 
It was different - and really interesting - to work without any colour on my card and I'm really pleased with the results:
 
 
I used a lovely digi stamp by Stitchy Stamps called Lite My Fire. Another thing I've done differently this week is that I've not used my Promarkers for colouring the digi stamp - due to the death of my Putty Promarker, which I use for skintones, I've been using my Prismacolor pencils instead lately and I actually think the softer colouring medium works really well on this image:
 
 
To make up for the lack of colour/patterned paper, I used lots of embossing and detailed die-cuts to add texture and interest. I cut a shaped card blank on my Cameo and also cut smaller circles which I embossed with a Stampin' Up! embossing folder. I also cut a delicate border and a sentiment label using the Cameo:
 
 
I finished things off with a leafy flourish (again cut with my Cameo) and some flowers and some Perlen Pen dots around the edges.
 
 
It's easy to enter the OSAAT challenge - you don't need to use a Stitchy Bear Stamps image to enter but if you do you'll be entered into the draw to win a $9 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear store. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear image will be entered into a draw to win a $3 gift voucher.
 
And don't forget, now's a brilliant time to pick up some Stitchy Bear Stamps products at bargain prices as the birthday celebration is on at the Stitchy Bear store until Friday with a whopping 33% off everything!
 
 
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
Lady Anne's Challenges : Friday Sentiment - Anything Goes
Clearly Inspired - Die Cuts
