White on White

Happy Monday friends and I hope you are well and raring to go.

I am here today with my DT card for a new challenge over at

The Cutie Pie Challenge and its White on White
 (As cute as can be though!!)

Now then, I am not of a nervous disposition but this theme really knocked the wind out of my sails but being the stoic girl that I am I dug deep and came up with this...


I had Bobbi printed out ready to go, so coloured him up with Promarkers, cut him out with my new SB oval set and used a fine liner to join the dots for the faux stitching. I made the card base using my new SB Couture Spring Orchard set and also embossed for some interest. Out came the cheesecloth and flowers that do incidentally look quite white in real life. I was tempted to whiten them up a bit more with white acrylic paint but then remembered when I had seen the effect using gesso it reminded me of bird poo, so used a tickle of star dust stickles instead!! (I apologise if I have offended any crafty peeps who do use white paint/gesso accents!!). The banner stamp set and associated die was a pre Christmas  buy from Craft Mojo  and the sheer spotted ribbon from my stash.

Loads of you out there do such a great job of the WOW style so we'd love you to join in this month.

Good morning Sarah,
Well you were maybe nervous of starting however you have made a fantastic job.
Everything about your stunning card is beautiful. It is certainly as "cute as can be"
Have a good day, extremely windy here at the moment.

Brilliant you have designed this perfectly white on white is hard but I love the image you decided on its so cute. You are right about Gesso it can look like bird poo at times you just have to be careful not to overdo it. I've thrown a few things in the bin before now!! Love and hugs Carole x

Your card is looking like a picture out of the lounge window, white on white!
