International Art and Soul Challenge 24

The theme for this fortnight is White on White. Now, that's not something I'm comfortable with. I like colour, and if anything, tend to over- rather than under-do that. So, this was quite hard.


I decided to use both some plain and pearlescent white card, alternating layers to give a little more definition. I embossed the background and used dies from Tattered Lace and others to make the flower and foliage. I completed the flower with a sticky gem and some white pearl strings I've had for ages. My ex-next-door neighbour was a hairdresser and when she was moving out, gave me some bits she had and they came in handy for this project.

I hope you can join us this time!

Lovely, the pearl strings are great, I have some and keep forgetting to use them. Maybe that's because I have them in a drawer labelled 'wedding' and rarely open it! Hazel x

Gorgeous Josephine, all the layering, embossing and die cutting really sets this creation off wonderfully :) :) :) xxxxx
