City Crafter #305

Good morning!

We have a  brand new challenge at the City Crafter.  
Today Marina is our host and
she picked the theme:
And asks us to use something white;
other than your card or paper.
You can think about white ink, paint etc.

I came up with Gesso and it turned 
out a card a bit different as usual:

I covered a piece of corrugated cardboard with gesso.
And added leafs cut from vellum

I bought that toothpick flag last year...
 Well let's say I rediscovered 
some purchases I forgot about:) 
Topped off with a buttefly in pale pink:

Our Guest Designer this week is Cammy L Wall
Hop over to her blog to see more of her fab cards! 

You can find more inspiration from her and 
 the other team members on our blog.
We are offering the winner 
a spot as our Guest Designer.
I am looking forward to see 
your take on this weeks' theme!
 Thanks for stopping by!

Gaaf is dat ribkarton voor de achtergrond! Het tak en vlinder staan er heel mooi op en zo is de kaart tegelijkertijd ietsje stoer en stijlvol!
Ellen said…
Mooi zeg! Gaaf is de combi van de grove ondergrond met daarop de tere takjes en vlinder.

Oh, this is such a fabulous card, Stella! I love the visual texture from the corrugate and the vellum combo, and the butterfly is adorable in pink!

You just blew me away, Stella--jaw dropping & fabulous!

Beautiful, Stella. This is so soft and delicate - even though you used cardboard. Lovely. said…
Fabulous ! Love the texture on this and and have to agree with Ros this is such an elegant mixed media piece.

Sostrene Grene ken ik inmiddels, daar heb ik van een heel lief iemand een leuke shopper met sterren van cadeau mogen krijgen (((-:

Echt een top kaart! Nonchalant chique!
