When I pick a challenge for inspiration, it's usually to try and challenge myself. I still have a lot of techniques and styles to explore, and I love challenges that take me out of my comfort zone. So last week when I did a white on white challenge and created my Humbug! box, I felt a little like I had cheated myself. out of fully exploring the technique as I deliberately chose a small medium so that the amount of white was minimal.
So this week when Simon Says Stamp had a white on white theme, I had another go. It's amazing how different whites can be! I used a pure white Bazzill for the base of the card, some plain white card went through the Sizzix for embossing, a white doily and white ribbon. As this is a bath tub scene and there is so much extra white in the image, I added a little pop to the bubbles (I made a punny) with glitter glue.
I felt the key to creating an interesting all white card was either to be totally minimalist (which I did last time) or to have a lot of different textures. The polka dot and raindrop patterns both suited the bath time image, and are separated by the lace of the doily. Hehe the ribbon at the bottom is placed in such a manner as to hide where I have lopped off some of the original digi. The original image has a puddle of water, a towel and some clothes, none of which I wanted to use, so I cut them off but that left a small notch in the lower right bath tub leg, hence the ribbon.
