White on White

is the theme for the challenge over on Less is More this time
and this is what I've come up with for the challenge


it's surprising what a lot of shades of white there are :-)


I used a brass stencil in my Big Shot to produce the fish & then cut it out & inked the edges using Brilliance Moonlight White.


I did the background using a cuttle bug embossing folder
and the fronds are my trusty Martha Stewart punch


The sentiment was stamped using Brilliance ink again & punched out using my Martha Stewart small scalloped circle punch
To finish I added the 3 white pearls as 'bubbles'

Everything about your card is perfect and lots of fun. Great textures and embellishments:-)

Struggled to get a decent impression using my Big Shot and a brass stencil. Gave up in the end and am going to try and find out why it didn't work for me...

I like the white on whites, and less is more very much! ELEGANT. Yes, you cannot go into any store of paint, paper, carpet or select ONE white! There are so many. You used yours all quite beautifully. Pearls as bubbles are perfect cos they come from the sea!

BIG CONGRATS ON WINNING YOUR TREASURE BOOTY of goody creations from the contest. WELL DONE YOU! I am sure Jon loved his card as well. You have gotten so much done. I have to know what you are sewing in textile work ... pretty fabric.
