Squigglefly Challenge - Mostly White

Every Monday there is a challenge on the Squigglefly blog. You want to check these out and participate when you can, because every week there is also a PRIZE given to one lucky participant. The prizes vary from free images to goodie bags. You do not have to use a Squigglefly image to participate.

This week's challenge is a good one! It is to create a card that is mostly white, with lots of sparkle. How fun is that?!??!!?

For my card, I used a brand new Shy Bear image called Bubble Bath Bear. It is just one of several images that were released this week, so you're going to want to go to the Squigglefly store and check them out.

As you can see from the picture, the only color I included on my card was the ink used to print the image. Everything else is white. What doesn't show up very well in the picture is the features of each layer of white.

The bottom layer (Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossed) was inked with Versamark and then sprinkled with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel which was then heated until it formed what looks like water droplets.

The second layer (Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossed) as well as the image layer were inked with Versamark and then sprinkled with Stampendous Kaleidoscope Transparent Embossing Powder and heat set. They have the most amazing glittery sparkle.

Perhaps this closeup picture will help you to see the wonderful sparkle of the embossing on the cute Bubble Bath Bear image:

Some jeweled rhinestones add additional sparkle to the card, as well.
