White Space


The challenge this week at Less is More #270 is a colour challenge. It is: White space but not  WHITE 


Here is the card I made:


The scribbly flower was stamped in black ink onto book paper. It was then coloured in a puddle of distress ink (Rose bud and Spiced Marmalade) and water. Once dry the flowers were glued onto snippets of black card and cut out. The same was done with a piece of torn paper for the sentiment. 

The sentiment was stamped and was heat embossed. I cut a piece of Kraft card to 12cm x 17 cm as the background of the card and assembled the flowers and sentiment using foam pads to add a bit of dimension. The main flower was finished with a pearl centre.The kraft card was attached to a white card base.

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:
