a whiter shade of pale..

well hey there blog friends and thanks so much for stopping by..
here is a make and not a tag!
 that's two days and no tag!
there is some ..rock candy loose glitter though...
so here is my make today:
well as i know own a stampsmith stamp...
hope to add more to my stash soon!!!
(selling some stash here to pay for them..
fungers crossed!!!)
i wanted to enter their challenge white on white..
i started by covering the canvas board in tissue wrap
and covered it in a thick layer of gesso..
to create texture.
the edges were embossed with white frantage.
i added lace
flowers..painted white
yes you have guessed glittered!! with rock candy distress loose glitter..
did i say i LoVE this!!?
dream was cut,
lightly coloured with antique linen..just to lift if from background
and triple embossed.
the image..gorgeous isn't she
was stamped in black archival
on card with a slight coating..i love her...
i did scuff the edges with a tonic tool
and finally some snowflake die cuts
with little wooden stars..
painted white
and liquid pearls centres..
i loved making this and had a ball.
i am entering this for the following competitions:

p.s i have some stash for sale here if you are interested!

have a fun and inky day!
