White on White Two Step Bird Punch Card

I'm a little late in posting tonight. My day just got away from me. I spent my early afternoon teaching at the local bead shop. A very fun time. I love misdirecting people! LOL I enjoy beading and it is fun to teach it too. I wish I could spend my days beading, stamping and playing with clay. I wish, I wish, I wish. Do you think saying it three times will make it come true? I wish! LOL

Ok, onto the card for today. I had been blog surfing and last week someone had a "white on white" challenge. Well, as you can see with my card, the "white on white" is still a challenge. I just couldn't do it. I had to sponge the edges to define the images.

I had the make of the website I found this layout at and of course I lost it in my mess. When I find it (if I find it) I will give credit where credit is due. Her card had a bird image stamped on it and it was colored in lightly. I'm sure I will find it so you can see her beautiful card.

For this card I used the new "Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch" and the "Scallop Trim" border punch.

I ran a piece of white card stock through the "Dotted Swiss" embossing folder.

There's a bit of satin ribbon here and a clear rhinestone brad from the "Pretties Kit."

I took a very fine foam brush/dauber type thing and sponged the edges. With it I was able to sponge lightly and get into the crevasses of the leaves without bending them.

It's a very lovely and elegant look and I'm sure it would be pretty too without the sponging. I'm sure I'll challenge myself to do another white on white card someday soon.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
