A Card for Mo's Manning Challenge - All shades of White


Todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge, it has to be all in white except the image, so Ive used this lovely image of Bella and Bronte which I think is quite apt in the circumstances in some of the areas of the UK. Anyway Ive coloured her with my copic pens, and the glittery bits were created with my Sakura glitter pen, and then cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto a piece of white pearlescent card, the greetings is again the Hero Arts stamp this also has been mounted onto a piece of white pearlescent card.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and for my first layer I have used a piece of white card and run it through my cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder, because the size was to big to put through the cuttlebug I cut it in half then joined them together covering the seam with a piece of white lace across the middle. On top of this I have used some white pearlescent paper, and with my snowflake flurry all around Martha Steward border and corner punches created a square to stick to the base layer, Ive also used a smaller piece of the same paper and again punched it all round and then positioned this one in a diamond shape. Then on top of these layers I have stuck my mounted image.
To finish of I have created four snowflakes from eight punched out pieces from my Martha Stewart punches, dipped them into Diamond Dust and then layered them up in twos, and stuck them either side of my stamped image, and the greeting was positioned at the bottom on the right hand side.
