Bubbly - I have seen so many white on white cards and finally I took the plunge and tried it! I love how it came out.
The challenge at Craft Your Days Away is "New Beginnings." This card could be used for a wedding or a celebration of any kind, such as a new job, not to mention New Years.
I used the sketch from Chocolate, Coffee and Cards.
We are sponsored by Stamp Fairy and they let me play with one of their images. I colored the image with Copics and added Stickles to the tie and bubbles. I also used Diamond Glaze on the goblet and the Bear's nose.
I used 3 little flower buds that I cut off a stem then added lots of Stickles to make them sparkly.My DP is a free down loadable from Gina K. I used the canvas. I love the EK Success punch that I used then added some tiny gemstones. I used a scrap of white embossed paper and inked everything with Tea Dye ink. My flower is a fabric trim that I centered a pearl in and added Stickles on it. I finished the flower off with a white feather and a small strand of pearls.
TIP: I store my gemstones in bead trays that I find in the jewery department in my local craft store. I really like the craftmates ones. I also store my brads and buttons in these.
