Colour Me 74

I'm very glad that I found some time this weekend to participate in this week's challenge at Colour Me. It's something that I find quite scary - being limited to just one colour - but when that colour is white, it's a whole lot more scary!

It's not like you can stamp off and get variations in tone with just white, so I went for variation in texture to get some differences: impression embossing, shiny ribbon, glittery embossing powder. To get some definition in the gerbera, I went for adding some height by separating the top layer with a dimensional. I might also add that it's jolly hard to get a good white-on-white photograph!

It's a bit hard to see in the photo but 'celebrate' and the centre of the flower have been embossed with SU Iridescent Ice embossing powder, so have a matching glittery sheen to them.

It was only when I was taking the pictures that I realised that there was no stamping on the card! 

Update: Delighted that this card was picked as a Colour Connoisseur at Colour Me

Card: Whisper white
Dies: MFT Gerbera Daisy, W&W Big, Bold and Party.
Other: Honeycomb embossing folder, SU White organza ribbon, SU Iridescent Ice embossing powder, dimensionals.


  1. See now I wish I could get over the white on white for myself cause this is gorgeous. I love all the die cuts and embossing very pretty thanks for sharing.

  2. here here to the challenge of photographing our white creations! I think your card is absolutely stunning. You managed to incorporate so much interest and detail in your card. It's truly outstanding! Thanks so much for sharing at the Colour Me challenge this week :)

  3. The texture from the flower really makes this card pop! I love the glittery celebrate too! Thanks for playing with us at Colour Me!

  4. I totally relate to your scary, but this is fabulous! Love the layering of your bloom, and all that scrumptious glitter and shine!
