Well, when my girl Jackie Pedro issued the Prettie Girls a "White on White" challenge two weeks ago, I think I TURNED white, LOL!
Of course, I didn't say anything...I like Jackie SO much-she is the sweetest person and so I just stayed mum and thought, OMG, WHAT am I going to do? So, basically, the challenge is to create an ALL WHITE card, with the exception of the main image. It could have as many layers, embellies, etc. as you wanted, but had to be ALL WHITE. Yikes!!
Well, I adore this giving thanks Sophia, the June Stamp of the Month at Paper Pretties, so I started there. By the way, you still have until the 31st of this month to sign up for the Stamp of the Month club...more deets here.
I colored in her skin and hair and the cute bow and flower, but left the rest true to the challenge. Using Angel Wings Shimmerz I gave her dress an angelic "glow" and then went onto the rest of the card. Oh dear...WHAT was I going to do?!?
I started with an all white Georgia Pacific base and embossed a frame into the card. Then, using my PTI Shimmer White CS, I embossed a 2nd layer w/ my CB embossing folder and bunkered it down on some dimensionals. Using my MS border punches, I created one more layer for the bottom zig zag edge as well as the picket fence that Sophia is standing behind. After adding some white American Crafts ribbon and some pearls, my card was complete...and you know? It wasn't THAT scary! Thanks Jackie for an awesome challenge!
I hope you guys will join us for our monthly Stampin' in your Jammies party at Paper Pretties for our June release! See you on June 1st at 7pm CST for all the fun!
