TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - WOW (white on white)



C'est mardi, donc un nouveau challenge chez Ladybug Crafts Ink! Cette fois-ci c'est Michele qui a fixé le thème: blanc sur blanc (la seule couleur autorisée est pour colorer l'image). J'ai utilisé des classeurs de gaufrage et de l'embossage à chaud pour donner un peu de texture à tout ce blanc... L'image que j'ai utilisée est Buttercup with bird on head.

It's Totally Ladybug Tuesday again! This week's challenge has been set by Michele and it is "white on white" (only color allowed in the image). Time to play with textures! I used both dry embossing (the dots and the fleur de lys medallion) and heat embossing with clear powder on the horizontal and vertical strips (I used the Papertrey Ink Basic Background - Diamonds stamp that Kerry sent me - thanks Kerry!). My embossing powder contains a bit of glitter, and with the glitter I added to the image for the snow, my card is very sparkly IRL! The petals of the flower are rolled one by one around a pencil body to give them a bit of dimension and the center of the flower is fixed with 3D foam. The image I used is Buttercup with bird on head.
I followed the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches (however as I had to wait for our challenge opening time to post this message, it is too late for entering their challenge). I would like to enter the following challenges:

  7. Nice design and the use of both wet and dry embossing adds to the white-on-white winter theme of your card. I like the pop of colour in your image too.
    Tres jolie!

    Thanks for joining us at Let's Ink It Up embossing challenge.

  10. Gaelle, this is gorgeous. Love how you've got different embossing on the background pieces. The heat embossing is very subtle but very pretty. Lovely flower.

    This is not a SU! flower... The bottom layers are poinsettia dies by Marianne designs, the upper layer is the smallest die in a scalloped octogon die set by Nellie Snellen.
