Sassy Cheryl's White on White Challenge/A Spoon Full of Sugar #101

This week, Sassy Cheryl's design team challenged us to a white on white challenge. Basically, the only thing that can have color is the image. No colored papers, embellishments, ribbons, etc. I loved the samples by the design team, so had to play with this challenge. Here is my card...

Stamp: Bubble Blower (Sassy Cheryl's)
Paper: White, white and white cardstock, and my image has some small snippets of Basic Grey
Ink: Ink jet printer, Copics
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Spellbinders Scallop Oval, Butterfly Embosslit (SU!), feather, Copic Air Brush System, Crystal Effects

I love how the white on white makes the color in the image really POP! I am thankful for embossing folders, because they add so much character to an otherwise white card.

I incorporated paper piecing on my image with Basic Grey paper, which I had not tried yet with digis. I printed directly onto my BG paper and cut out the sweater, dress and bows. The paper I used for the dress turned out unusual, but really added some great character to the image.

I also added some Crystal Effects to the bubble to give it just a little shine.

I incorporated the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar which was 3-D something, and I made my image 3-dimensional. I printed several images for the dimensional effect. I also printed on regular printer paper so I could make a mask for my airbrushing. This card required a lot of cutting out, but I love the result.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!
