Welcome to the first Sweet Pea Stampers challenge of 2011. This time we want you to make a card or a project using all white with the exception of the image where you can use colours of your choice. As always we have a fantastic prize, this time its three sheets of decoupage from The Crafty Purple Frog. I really hope that you will join us and look forward to seeing your creations. Also, don't forget to check out the fantastic blog candy currently on offer.
When I first saw this challenge I kind of panicked! Not that I'm afraid of white space, far from it I love it, but Sweet Pea stamps and white space, post Christmas??? I don't think so!! However, I've had to eat my words and say that once I'd got over the initial shock of the challenge and started playing with ideas, that Sweet Pea stamps and lots of white is a fabulous combination! Don't believe me? Checkout what the other DT girls have done for this challenge - their projects are totally amazing!
I've used ching-chou kuik's Fairy of the Night for this card. The image has been stamped and heat embossed and then re-stamped, coloured with Promarkers, cut out and mounted onto the heat embossed image. I've then added plenty of sparkle with Stardust and Tumbled Glass Stickles.
The white cardstock has been embossed with my new Sizzix Texture Fades Burlap/Swirls and Textured Impressions Winter embossing folders and the edges have been distressed with the Tim Holtz Distressing Tool. The flowers have been cut from the Sizzix Tattered Florals Die and then coated with glass particles (thanks to the lovely Kate of Downright Crafty for pointing me in the direction of this fab product) and secured with pearl brads from Kars.
Thanks for stopping by.
