Now here's a good challenge: white-on-white from Charisma Cardz. For me the challenge wasn't so much making a beautiful white card, as photographing the wretched thing. Have you ever tried taking a monochrome photo? I don't think I had either until earlier today. My goodness!
Anyway, this is a card for a friend who is expecting a baby. I don't know whether it's a boy or a girl yet, so Colour Create's lovely idea of using soft pink, soft blue, white and silver was just right for this. Charisma Cardz's white-on-white also allowed colour on the image and sentiment - perfect. Add it to the new baby challenge at Simon Says and this sketch from Truly Scrumptious, (with stitching) and I'm chuckling with satisfaction.
And my card? Please forgive the photo. I ended up using DH's fancy new camera with the latest lens and a whole pile of white balance settings to play with. It's better than my trusty camera, and I still think it looks rubbish.
It's plain white card from the office stationer's. I had a field day with my Cuttlebug embossing folders: swiss dots, paisley and the pram-on-a-stamp that came with the machine. I inked the edges with silver Encore ink, coloured in the pram with my Copics and a silver pen. The balloon brads started life as gold and blue, and I heat embossed them silver, and tied them (that was fiddly) using Stampin' Up! silver elastic cord to the pram handle with a brad. The "stitching" was done using my paper piercer and a silver gel pen. The butterflies came from my stash.
