There's a problem with Blogger at the moment with the new post editor never successfully loading. I thought my blog was broken but luckily switching to the old editor worked for me so here I am posting about the new LIM challenge - white on white (it had to happen eventually).
Actually, I'm rather pleased it's on as I've been attempting to do this for a while, as recent as the previous LIM challenge....to no avail....This time, no choice but to really go white on white.
There are lots of things happening here and it's probably pushing the CAS boundaries but when it's white on white, there's plenty of white "space". :-)
stamp: Bring on the cake
others: Tim Holtz Sewing Room die, Cuttlebug cut and emboss die (wings), Heat & Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds
I pressed the dress top on Versamark and poured a 50/50 mix of Heat & Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamonds and voila a super-shimmery top. The skirt was made from 2 layers of scrunched up white tissue paper and sprayed on with Perfect Pearls mist to balance out the top which was very shimmery. I wrapped a skinny ribbon and added some tiny pearls - I love pearl buttons on real dresses. Actually, the initial skirt I made used embossed cardstock but it looked too heavy against the top hence the switch to tissue paper. The wings are also an after-thought and I think the card looks better with them than without them (open to suggestion here!)
The joke - this card will be given to a girl turning (sweet) 16 in August. It is so highly unlikely that this girl will ever wear a dress such as this. I do love that her sense of humour is steeped towards sarcasm, especially subtle ones - very British (I love British humour). If she ever gets a dress like this, it'll be sent off back where it came from, for sure!...hence the wings. :-)
I'm rather disappointed with this as it was much better in my head but so it is till the next card.
I've said it before but I'll say it again, thanks all for visiting and a special thanks to all those who bother to comment - it takes time and effort, I know.
