Stampotique Challenge: Winter Whites

This week, Valerie challenges us to use various shades of winter whites in our projects - white, shimmer white, off-white, ecru, eggshell, etc. Here's what she said about this color choice, "Well, it wasn't planned, but this theme has a striking significance for those of us here on the East Coast who have just endured a big winter snow storm! All of nature is drooping under the weight of a heavy white winter blanket! Mother Nature really does provide the most beautiful inspiration!"

Oh no... no color!!! This was a real challenge for me. But I love challenges, it puts you out of your comfort zone and makes you try different things. For this card I used the TH Baroque Dies. The biggest Die Cut I embossed with the TH Retro Circles Embossing Folder. And on the smallest Die Cut I used Embossing Powder. I also used Distress Ink Antique Linen for stamping and distressing the edges. I have to be honest  I don't read French, so I have no idea if there are inappropriate words showing ;-)

Don't forget that I will draw a winner this week for my Valentine Giveaway! It's not to late to join ;-) click on the button on the right for the blogpost about the giveaway.

  1. This is so cute Astrid, I really like how the Antique Linen looks against the white. This was a real challenge for me too, I want my colours back lol xx

  2. This is a very cool card Astrid, I love your layered baroque die-cuts, well done, and this lovely spiraling stamp adds a smooth look and texture !! (never seen yet). Don't worry about french words, it's perfect ! Same as you, very challenging challenge this week ah ah !! xx

  3. Ondanks de beperking van de kleuren is het een hele mooie kaart geworden.
