Relaxing Bubbles - Happy Hoppers / House Mouse




I have been trying all week to find time to do these two challenges so I'm coming in at the last minute or I may even be late but I wanted to try both of these challenges. At House Mouse and Friends you were to color your image but everything else had to be in white. Your card stock, papers, embellishments etc....all white on white. I chose to use a Happy Hopper image called "Relaxing Bubbles" with minimal coloring which I did with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. I added some crystal Stickles to the bubbles for added pizazz. I used different shades of white card stock of which I ran the 3 panels through the bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder. Flowers are by Prima Flowers with a pearl center. Leaf punch is by Martha Stewart and satin ribbon is by Offray. I cut my circles using my Spellbinders nesatbilities.

I thought the sketch over at Mojo Monday was the perfect sketch to showcase my white on white card. This was my first experience at making a white on white card and I think I would like to try it again when I have a bit more time to really get into it. I can see where the white on white could give some really dramatic results when using different shades of white and texture.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have had a fun weekend creating!
