Simon Says Stamp - W Is For White Monday Challenge

I've created this card for the Simon Says Stamp, Simon Monday Challenge W Is for White. At first, I was going to create a white on white card but when I saw the picture of this swan, I wanted to incorporate the subtle blue hues that are on the water. The background was created using Distress Inks in Broken China & just a touch of Weathered Wood leaving the middle portion a bit lighter. I just purchased the Martha Steward stencil & was anxious to use it, so I thought that this project was perfect for the touch of white and also to show the blue background. The swan & the frame are Spellbinder dies that were highlighted with a bit of Broken China. The seam binding is white but to tie it in with the rest of the card, it has a very light tint of Broken China.


  



I really hope you liked this week's project and thank you for stopping by!!!
