Mostly White

There was a challenge this weekend to do a mostly white card. I am sorry, but I do not remember where I saw it. Let me know if you know. I am not sure whether this one qualifies, but here it is.

I purchased Touch of Nature a few weeks ago. Natural Beauty is retired, and I still want a bird and a butterfly. I still miss that block with all the words, but have you seen Tres Chic? I think that one might work, and it has more "inspirational" words than the Natural Beauty one.

This picture is not the greatest. I took 8 different pictures and this was the best. Sorry you can't see the butterfly IRL.

I masked a rectangle on the white, and sponged in marigold morning ink. Then I added the sentiment and doodles in chocolate chip. I stamped the butterfly with Timber brown Staz-on. Then I watercolored him in with bordering blue and marigold morning, and cut him out. Of course he is popped on dimensionals.

Stamps: Touch of Nature, Warmest Words Inks: bordering blue, marigold morning, timber brown (Staz-on) Paper: whisper white, marigold morning Extras: small paint brush, dimensionals, post-it notes, sponge

Really great card, Corie. Thanks so much for sharing this great idea. I may just have to case the sponging on white idea for an upcoming workshop.

Keep up the good work!
