Colour Create Challenge 30 - All White



Hi everyone, there's a new challenge today on Colour Create and I'm a bit late with my post I'm afraid! This time our theme of All White with a coloured image is chosen by Heather, thanks Heather, we all loved this one and all the DT cards are amazing! There's no optional extra which is just as well as I'd completely forgotten to check :D! Hope you can join us and there's a great prize of a $25 gift certificate from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp so, even more reason to join in.

I've made an 4 inch easel card from white textured card. and then I've scored a criss cross grid on my score board and highlighted with dots of stardust stickles. The image is my Poinsettia digi stamp which is printed out on watercolour paper and painted with distress inks. The image is cut out around the top and I've added some different sized yellow gems for the centre and some stickles here and there. To finish I popped on a die cut Happy Christmas sentiment. TFL.
