Whiter Than White!

Good afternoon bloggers, here I am again with another CAS card. I've used a lovely stamp by Ching Chou Kuik and coloured it using promarkers. The new ultra fine nibs that you can get to fit over the existing bullet nibs are ideal for detailed stamps like this and I've been really indulgent with myself and used my two favourite colours here - the gorgeous turquoise shades and the lovely lilac shades. If you're interested, I created the mottled look to the background by going all over the area with a blender pen first then adding my colour while it was still wet, then using the blender pen again in a circular  motion each time. I then cut the image out with a nesties label die. I'm loving white on white atm so I decided to do some paper weaving using white pearlescent paper strips and to give them more texture and definition, I've used 4 different cuttlebug folders to create two pieces for the diagonally opposite corners. I finished it simply with daisies punched from the same pearlescent white and added a tiny pearl to the centre of each. I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Thank you for visiting today.
