We're midway in our current 'White On White' challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. It's Team B's turn to post our cards/projects as a midway reminder--Team A posted theirs last week. Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for complete details on the challenge and how you can join in the fun. And have a look at what my DT teammates have created to inspire you.
I love making white-on-white cards--it's another favorite style of mine...hmm, I have many faves! One reason is because I don't have to spend time searching for co-ordinating paper for a colour scheme...ha ha--it takes me forever to do this. And all those whites make the coloured images you're featuring pop out.
Tutorial on the pine cones you can find HERE.
Here are close-ups of the Magnolia images I've used:
- Tilda on the Roof from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012
- Mini A Joyful Tilda from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013
- Mini Show The Way Baby Rudolph from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013
- Old Swedish Church from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012
I used this image to help me create the background scene.
