White + 1

This week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time is one to hopefully make you get creative and think outside the box... the theme is White + 1. So on your project you can use only white and one other colour (and also skin colour - that's allowed). It's harder than you might think! :)
 
For my card I was using this cute and sassy MeowMe digistamp by BBKakes:
 
 
I coloured in the image with my Promarkers using only skin tones and shades of orange and then carefully cut her out:
 
 
I trimmed a panel of white card to fit my card blank and die-cut a decorative aperture in the centre before embossing the entire panel (the pattern reminded me of tiger stripes) and blending a little Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink around the edges.
 
 
I attached the panel to my card front and added some die-cut leafy flourishes and attached my cut-out image over the aperture using foam tape. To finish I dotted some Perlen Pen around the aperture.
 
 
You don't need to use a Stitchy Bear product to enter our challenge but if you do, you'll have a chance to win our main prize for this week. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.
 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Your card is darling. I like the embossing folder you used goes perfect with her outfit. I also like how you colored her and did the window behind her. :D
