Create Without Limits


Hello!!!  It's Wanda here today (waving).  I can just about see the surprise on some of your faces at the lack of color on my card :-)  Gasp!!!  Over the past year (or so... time does get away from me) I've seen quite a few pieces using just white cardstock to put something together and how about paper sculptures all done in white (just google paper sculptures), they are amazing.  So I challenged myself to go outside "my" box and work without color.  It was hard!!!  Every part of me cried out to add color.  Now I probably cheated a little by adding texture but I couldn't help it, lol.  I used an embossing folder for the background along with a diffuser plate to keep the stamped area smooth.  The fern and butterfly are both cut files and I used a stylus to add detail.

  6. HEY WANDA!! (waving right back atcha! LOL) I love this card! It embodies what the stamp sentiments says..."Create without borders!" Or...limits! I think we put unrealistic restrictions on ourselves or get in our mind "how something should be," but you just crafted without those "pre-thoughts!" I love it and it makes for a refreshing card! Quite frankly, ANYTHING you do is that way, so you won't get a different reply from me on that score! LOL LOL Lovely, lovely card Wanda, love it! :) Blessings my friend! :)
