White on White and Whimsy

Welcome to my new followers, thank you for choosing my blog!  

OK on to this weeks Whimsy Inspirations Challenge, it's White on White!  Your image can be coloured, but that's the only thing, you'll see that using only white and texture really makes your image pop!

 I had fun with this, I've used a Livy Bo image called Flap Happy, she's just so chic.  Her flower is coloured in spica pens, silver, clear and red The rest is coloured in copics E50, 51 and 53 for her skin, E40, 43, 44, 49 for her hair, R27 46 for her headband and lips. A row of tiny pearls for her necklace and she'd finished.

It hasn't picked up so well in the photo, the back panel is a script stamp, stamped in versamark then dusted with Macro Pearls mica powder.  It shimmers beautifully. The next layer is dry embossed with a damask design, this has been sprayed with Champagne Shimmer Mist paint mixed with rubbing alcohol so it's also sparkly in a slightly different way to the mica powder.

I've then cut the Butterfly from my Whimsy butterfly die from Pearlised white card and then decided that the little holes would look great with rhinestones, and look I have a W!  LOL... I wonder if that was deliberate as it's a Whimsy die.  

I've also really gone to town with all my white Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  I sponged a little bit of light gray over the edges of my layers to help define them better.  I've also used my Nestie ovals to frame the image and the sentiment.

Have fun with our White on White challenge, can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Cheers,
