This week we have such a cool challenge at Our Creative Corner. Our hostess is Kristin Tierney and she is challenging us to use only white in our creation this week. Don't worry that it will look flat. You can enhance it with textures and patterns. Here is an inspiration photo to get you started.
I decided to make a wall hanging instead of a card this week. (don't forget, if you click once on the photo of my wallhanging, it will open up a larger version so you can see the details. Click again and it becomes even larger. ) I started with a square 12x12" cream colored doily and cut 3 of the 4 corners off, then reattached one of the corners to the top of my piece. I mounted the doily on a piece of white card stock. I wanted to mount the piece on corrugated cardboard but it needed to be white so I painted it completely with white acrylic paint. The corrugated cardboard I sell in my Etsy shop is flexible and lightweight so I mounted it on a piece of cardboard for strength and stability.
The lace and applique were dyed in a very weak tea solution, to just give them an ivory tint. The crinoline for the flower was dyed in a tea solution also, just a bit stronger than the lace.
I added a Spellbinders die cut, a sentiment panel and a piece of bronze metal that I white embossed. I also embossed the large metal filigree at the bottom. It was originally bright brass.
I turned it upside down and smooshed it into a craft white ink pad and then embossed it with white embossing powder.
I love the enameled look that the embossing powder gives.
That about wraps up the details for this piece. If you have any questions, please either leave them in the comments or email me privately. Thanks so much for dropping by and for your lovely comments. And be sure to stop by Our Creative Corner to see the rest of the team's cards. Hope you will play along with us this week!
