It's 'WHITE' on 'WHITE' and a little Stenciling.

Do you love just White on White?
I 'DO'
My favourite 'go to' for cards at the moment are
Stencils and have only delved into them big time of late.
I also discovered that you can do some much with them
especially with Textured Paste just to name one.
Now I have never gone there before even though
I love playing with backgrounds.
Maybe I must have been under a mushroom.
Now that the Pandora Box has opened - goodness knows
where it will take me.
I recently bought this fabulous Tim Holtz Stencil
called Holiday Knit and thought I would try
my new found trend.
I made my own Texture Paste as I don't live near
a craft store. I just used Acrylic Paint
Glue and didn't have Baby Powder so
used Bicarb of Soda. I did read that this would
make the paste rough and it did that but I liked the result.
Not bad for my first attempt
I showed my Sister in Law and she was into
Folk Art so she gave me her supply of
Acrylic Paints so I am going to have so much fun with them.
Sorry - a bit long winded there.
Onto the reason I am posting here.
I found a great challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge
and it is W for all WHITE - Perfect I said.
All I had to do was pop my Embossed Stencil
and add a Sentiment from SU Heard from the Heart.
I had this lovely paper that has a gold sparkle
going through it which was just what I needed
to go with the Gold embossed sentiment.
I curled the edges and lifted part
of the sentiment.
I also found another challenge that suited my card
where you were asked to use a Stencil and Stamp
(Just got those 2 in). Mine is just a
simple mixed media card.
So that's it for this post.

WOO HOO! Absolutely love that you make your own paste. I do to and I love it. Bought some from the craft store and it's so runny. I really rather prefer the homemade kind and with baby powder it smells so yummy!
Your card is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!! That stencil pattern and all the white is just pure holiday festive.
hugs to you Ina,

I love the elegant simplicity of your white on white card Ina. The paste you've made and used through the stencil looks so lovely left white.
Thanks so much for joining us at ATP Exchange for my challenge.
