WOW

This is my second post for today and it's a WOW card (white on white). I love these cards as they really make the image stand out but I don't make them often enough so when I saw the challenge of total whiteout at Penny Black I resolved to get out a Penny Black image and have a go. Not using patterned papers really makes you think about what to use on your card. I've coloured the image with Spectrum Noirs for a change from Promarkers and edged it with DI Worn Lipstick. I've used Nesties labels fourteen and the matting was made with Centura Pearl and a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I've used some textured card and a CB snowflakes embossing folder and white ribbon. I've added some faux stitching, MS punched snowflakes and Crealie die cut swirls.
Other Challenges:
DYSU Ribbon
Bah Humbug Cute Christmas Critters
ABC E is for Embossing
Joanna Sheen Christmas Wishes

I only managed to get a little bloghopping done this morning but had a lovely surprise as I found out I had won some gorgeous stamps on Kath's blog. Kath has been featuring Tim Holtz tags and her own take on them, which are all fabulous. I'm planning some more commenting this evening whilst hubby watches TV.

Hi Marianne: Oo Lala! This sure is white and sparkly! It is beautiful and christmassy and seasonal and "loveable!" Your image, though it won't qualify for our FAVOURITE at FF because it isn't one of the FF images, is absolutely adorable! They are positively squishy cute!!!! You do qualify though Marianne for a top winner, so great goings with this card and I wish you much success in all the challenges and of course ours at FOREVER FRIENDS. Spirited Love, Samara
