House Mouse #47 White on White

Over on HouseMouse the current challenge is white on white.

I quote from the blog - "White on White! I know this sounds somewhat misleading; but trust me, it is super-super easy! Actually, it is a total flip from last week's challenge. Last week, you were asked to create a card/project in which you could not color your adorable images...this week, you are to color your images, but everything else MUST be white...white papers, white embellies, white everything EXCEPT for your House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image. Sounds easy, right? Now, it is time for you to create your House Mouseterpiece And don't forget, HAVE FUN!!!"
This idea really appealed to me, so I went off to have a play. Let me say, it was a bit more difficult than I first thought!
So I settled on using three different textures of white cardstock - textured, wove and smooth. House Mouse make a wish was stamped on the smooth cardstock and coloured in with watercolours and ofcourse the obligatory kindy glitz ;-). Cuttlebug was used to cut out deckled rectangles. Rectangles were then heat embossed with silver (hope that doesn't count as a colour :-( ) and mounted in two layers using 3D foam tape. White organza ribbon with sparkles was laid across the middle and affixed using vellum tape. Happy Birthday sentiment is a rub-on.
I really like the clean simple lines of this card. Thanks House Mouse Challenge Blog - another great challenge that got the creative juices going!
