Color Create Challenge #30 -- All White!

If there is one thing I love to do it is to play with color combinations. I usually color up a bunch of images, then match them to paper later.

Well, I found a new challenge called Color Create and had to jump in! So the first week I do the challenge they have --- NO color!! All white, except the image. No problem! I love to do that, too. In fact I had this pretty little note card done a week or so ago but hadn't posted it yet. This is the perfect time.

Now, for whatever reason, the photo decided to take on a pink glow, but, as you can see in the detail shot below, the card really is layers of white.

Beautiful Whiff of Joy Willow is colored with Copics (and I lost my list of colors), my favorite medium. She is sitting pretty on two layers of Nestibilities die cuts, the bottom one embossed with Cuttlebug folder Bubbles. The base layer is Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. The sprigs of fir are Martha Stewart punch.
I do like layers of white and will probably be doing more with my Christmas cards. It is such a clean look and so wintery, too.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your weekend is full of fun and good weather.

Hi Barb

This is a beautiful card. Well done on no colour. Nestabilities are great - wish I had some. Really useful when doing something like this. Great colouring.
