BWT White As Snow!


Hello Everyone!!  It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour!!  If you've jetted in from Meredith's Blog, than you've arrived at the right destination!  If you've arrived by chance, why not start back at the Flourishes' Blog as see all the inspiration the team have for you!!  This month, our lovely hostess Meredith has challenged us to a White As Snow challenge!  This is open to interpretation, so I've gone with a mostly white card with a little 'cool' blue for a snowy feel.  Here in Australia, it is now Summer time so definitely no snow in my neck of the woods!  In saying that, even in the middle of winter it never snows here, our climate is just too tropical!  :)


I started by cutting a piece of white with Spellbinders Tapestry die and then matted it with a piece of white lightly airbrushed with Copic B000.  I've wrapped some white crochet lace ribbon and white satin ribbon around these layers.  I've then added a rhinestone flourish for a bit of sparkle!  The sentiment is from Flourishes' Winter Blossoms set and has been cut with Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die Set and then popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a little ribbon and some white flowers and then popped the whole panel up on foam tape over a fold white card base.

Well this is the last stop on today's hop, from here it's back to the Flourishes Blog!  I hope you've enjoyed jetting around the world and been inspired by our wonderful team!
