When I stood down at the beginning of the year from the three fabulous Design Teams that had been daft enought to have me , it was my intention to have a complete year's break - however, I had not taken into account the persuasive abilities of Marianne - so here is my first Design Team creation for Winter Wonderland!
The challenge this week is "White on White with a Coloured Image" and has been set by the lovely Suzi. Do pop over to the challenge to see the knock-out creations made by Marianne's Team for this week.
And if that wasn't enought, the challenge is being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.
Here's my card:
Now, white on white is to me what salt is to a slug - it makes me want to curl up in a corner. But I persevered and must give a huge vote of thanks to Mad Moose who started the spark of inspiration for this one, even though it didn't end up as originally envisioned! I started with a 6x4 card and using my Classic Square Nesties I cut an aperture. After running some white card through the Bug with my Swiss Dots embossing folder I layered that behind the hole. Cuttlebug snowflake for the centrepiece with a HobbyCraft snowflake or three around the edges. Sizzix flourishes, generously coated in Crystal glitter from Hero Arts, and of course, the most gorgeous little Fizzy Moon Christmas Bear with his message which I have coloured with Copics. The colours seemed quite strong for a white card so I toned them down using the blender pen. And finally, a few white pearls to finish.
Phew. Right, that's me done, let's see what you guys can come up with! See you over at the challenge.
