Digital Tuesday Challenge - All white

Hello and thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

If you are here for the Whimsy Stamps Digital Release Blog Hop click here!




Our challenge today, chosen by the lovely Michelle, is

White only

Everything on the card has to be white except one image and maybe a sentiment. So all papers and embellishments had to be white. What a fabulous challenge, I think we are going to see some really elegant cards this week!

For my card I used an new image from Whimsy Stamps - Dance of Love - from the Crissy Armstrong collection. This image comes in black and white or pre-colored. I used the black and white version.
I had colored the image light brown and pink with some sky blue, but then I wasn't so sure I liked it. So I asked my 4 year old what she thought I should color it like, she said a purple mane and white horse. Why did I not think of that!! That sounds like the prefect princess horse!

So here is my card.


I added a little bit of green to the image as an accent color. The horse was covered with stickles glitter. I also added some glitter around the edges. I'm sorry, the papers turned out purplish, my camera does not like taking all white cards, but I promise you, they are all white. I used several Martha Stewart punches, and added some white pearls and white ribbon for embellishments.

Here is a close up.

I combined a few other challenges too:
I hope you'll play along this week, we have another amazing sponsor, Stitchy Bear Stamps, givign away 5 digis to one lucky winner!

Have a great day,
Ellie .
