Monochromatic & MoJo 198

Happy Saturday! It's time for another challenge over @ Our Creative Corner and what a wonderful challenge they have this week.  It's monochromatic!  And not just any one color, but WHITE!  Now, before you pull your hair out, take a breath.  And take a look at the inspiration board.  And now take a look at what the design team have come up with, to help get you inspired!


As you can tell from the inspiration board, there are alot of different shades of white.  And look how great they look together.  There are soft, rough, and mixed textures of white.  And all the different shades of white!  Everything from snow white to cream white.  Now, mix them, give the different shades of white a different texture, to help keep your card visually interesting.


Here's my card, and here is a close-up of the stamped panel.  I used a white craft ink and a cream craft ink for the heat embossing.  I added white EP and clear EP to the different inks to create a different texture and give the card some visual interest.  I also added some smooth and texture cardstocks.  I used silver glass glitter to the butterfly center: heart.  I added some white crochet trim to the card, for a different texture.  I used a new stamp set from SU!: Kindness Matters.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look.  Now, go craft something and enter our white monochromatic color challenge @ Our Creative Corner.

I love how you mixed your whites and textures! This is really lovely, the embossed panel in the back is fantastic (gotta get me that folder) and the layers really make the card so beautiful! Great job on the challenge this week, have a great weekend! PS - this is Kristin, for some reason I can't seem to get my comments to work since the Blogger breakdown a while back....

What a sensational piece of work, Sharon! Wonderful work with the different embossing powders and inks and I love the way you grouped your layers and stacked them. The overall effect is just lovely!

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Hugs,
Linda
