White on white... plus a coloured image

Over at Simon Says Stamp challenge blog the challenge is ALL WHITE plus a coloured image.  I saw some awesome samples from the design team... they all used Magnolia stamps.  I only have one Magnolia stamp ( at least until my Simon Says order arrives!) so decided to go with something else.  Maybe will come back to her later....

Anyway, I like the way a number of the DT used embossing folders to give the white some texture.
White and Blue

I used a Provocraft folder called Diamonds in the Rough to emboss the white background.  I added a doily ( bought a whole heap yesterday- so look out for a few more)  The butterfly was sitting in a container on my desk and I added some colour with a Copic and some distress ink and stickles.

No stamp group for me today as I have LOTS of housework to do... ( currently waiting for the floors to dry) I want to have the house clean so I can head off for surgery knowing all is good. I've been giving hubby instructions on what needs doing.... and been teaching him to do the on-line banking.... usually my job, but in case anything untoward happens, he needs to know how to access the money!!!!

Better get back to it... a pile of ironing to do before heading out for dinner with friends tonight.

Enjoy the weekend...
