The House That Stamps Built: Designer Choice Challenge

 Wendy picked this week for our DCC (Designer Choice Challenge) at The House
That Stamps Built and she choose CAS-lots of white space and minimal 
embellishments. I am not good at white space so this was a challenge for me.



I started with one of my favorite Repeat Impression stamps to color:
Vase of Tulips,  and used some fall looking Copic colors. I used a white
die cut (Frame in Frame by Taylored Expressions) and a white embossed  layer
 (with a circular design) from my ready  to go box and 
stopped, no gems, no pearls.  That was difficult but I do like the result.
Thanks Wendy for the challenge!

Join our weekly challenge, you might just 
be the lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the
 $25 Repeat Impression's  gift certificate. You don't have to use
Repeat Impression stamps but an extra chance if you do.  
Drawing is the first Wednesday every month.

Serenely lovely greeting. The monochromatic white layers are striking, but in no way overpowering - while also being a great reminder to us all to lean heavily on a single background colour sometimes.
