shades of white


the theme at Gothic Arches is shades of white. *gulp* that's a scary theme. but I do so love a challenge, so first stop was my box of images where I found this gorgeous little girl from Inka all dressed in white. A bit more rummaging and sticking later and I made this.

The heart stamp is from Inka and is white embossed on vellum, the flowers are made from vellum too, and the heart clip was silver so I white embossed that as well. I went for a textured background, to stop it looking too plain.
