Allsorts Challenge

Here is my entry for this weeks Allsorts Challenge which was to make a card that is "All White" I've seen a lot of cards that are plain white and I've always wanted to try it so now I've finally done it. I wanted to keep it quite plain as I thought the simplicity of the colour needed to speak for itself.

I used plain white pearlescent card for the base and the embossed part, the ribbon and gem are from my stash and the sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp which I stamped in black then heat embossed it with White Pearl embossing powder from Powder Arts. I got the powder from a Craft Fayre and I love it, it is definitely my product of the moment, it almost transforms the colour of the ink to something much softer which is why I used it on this card as I feel the soft grey works really well with the plain white.

I loved doing this card so much I made another straight away ha ha!

Hope you like them
