White and bright

The Shabby Tea Room challenge #45 is "White and Bright", to use white and only 1 other color.  Here is my submission:


Inspired by a card on the Hero Arts Blog by Kelly Rasmussen, I used a doily that Agata sent to me as a mask on white cardstock, and sponged on broken china distress ink to bring out the detail, then continued the sponging all around the doily image.  Then I overstamped the script in the same ink, and my sentiment in black ink.  The flowers were stamped and embossed in white on 2 different aqua/turquoise cardstocks and cut out, then popped above each other, finishing with a button.    Here is a detail to show the layers on my flower:


Supplies: white, aqua and turquoise cardstocks, broken china distress ink, versamark and white embossing powder, versafine onyx black ink, doily for masking,  Hero Arts stamps CL496 Layered Flowers, S4878 Old Letter Writing, AR130 Handwritten Sentiments, pale blue button, white twine
