Simon Says - "Are you All White ?"


WOW you certainly enjoyed last week's challenge - over 460 entries - thank you all and I hope you enjoy this week challenge as much - I certainly did.

This week at Simon Says Stamp our challenge is to make your project ALL WHITE the only colour to be used should be on any image you decide to use.


I enjoy making scene's if you'll pardon the pun!! I enjoyed colouring these images when I put them together last time I couldn't resist doing it again and creating a totally different look and card.
The Lili of the Valley image 'Carol singers' was stamped, masked and the Magnolia Winter Houses was stamped over the mask. The image/s were then coloured in Copics and I used a mixture of fun flock and flowersoft on the fur hats. On the trees and edges of the image I've used Stardust stickles. The base of the card is embossed using Tim Holtz's checkerboard folder - not a likely choice but I love it and think it gives a gorgeous embossed base. The snowflakes are cut with Spellbinder Create a Flake 1 and coated with Diamond dust and the holly leaves with a Crealies die. I used the Floral accents die for the edges and added pearls from my stash. The lace around the edge and ribbon are also from my stash, whilst the sentiment is CC Designs and cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Tag.
Guess what - I've just found another ooops - I haven't coloured my little chap's shoes - how could I miss that??? Too late now - he'll just have to keep his white trainers on!!!

I'm there on Sunday so shall look out for you. Love this all white look - so elegant with that splash of colour. The oops is only noticeable if you know!
Find myself thinking of you rather a lot lately - as I search for items that have secreted themselves in some unfathomable place (& it's not my husband tidying up - that he does not do in my Craft Room - however he does bring me little bits of crafty items that he has scooped up from around the house - just in case I'm looking for something).
