LSC186 - White Out!
LSC186 – White Out!

. . . as in get your white cardstock out!! (Okay, vanilla is good, too, but didn’t make for a very impressive title!)

As I was looking at the sample that emilymomto3boys made for her color challenge the other day – CC184 – I was struck once again by the absolute beauty of a simple white card. So, that is where inspiration for this challenge came from.

Here is the challenge. Create a card using white or vanilla as the main color (usually whatever shows on the most predominant background layer – or top layer, not including cut out images). I am going to set some pretty strict guidelines, so please read ‘em all before you run off to create.

1. White/Vanilla as main color
2. Second color MUST be either black, brown (any shade) or gray
3. Add a third color to accent the first two colors
4. Use ONLY ink that matches the cardstock colors you have chosen – no extra colors here!
5. NO patterned paper or background stamps
6. Stamp only ONE image, ONE time, somewhere on the white piece of cardstock. Remember that you are LIMITED to only THREE colors – TOTAL!! No cheating by adding extra colors to a line art image that has to be colored in!
7. If you use punches or a Nestabilties-type die, please stamp the image on white or vanilla there as well, keeping your top background layer white/vanilla, too!
8. Stamp a sentiment and add to your card (this step is optional) – only use it once
9. Embellish as you like (ribbons, brads, Cuttlebug embossing folders)
10. NO “distressing” the white cardstock – (that would be sponging!) – we want to keep these layers “clean”

My daughter, Amelia (aka Wendybell’sGirl) was once again my sample assistant. I have really enjoyed including her cards in my samples (now, if I could just get her to clean up her mess!)

Here are some samples:

Glitter and iiep are just fine! You can use any embellishments . . . just keep it to one image, one sentiment, and three colors (one of which has to be white/vanilla, one which has to be black/brown/gray and a third one of your choice!)!

cher2008 09-18-2008 09:02 PM

This sounds like alot of fun!!!!! can I add glitter to my white?
