White on (not so) white

Hello my friends. It has been so long since I last posted a card in here. I took some time off from blogging and card making during the Christmas. Card making wasn't fun anymore because I was in time trouble. My design team cards was on last minute and I hated that feeling. I needed a little brake. And on that time I manged to make some DT cards for future challenges and that feels so good :)  At least next few weeks I don't have to worry about being late :)
Here's my first card on this year.

This week theme on the Paper Makeup Stamps is "White on White."  I put too much color on my white card but I'm sure you can too better :) Just don't forget to use digi image on your project.

I used lots of die-cuts on my card. I really love the white on white but die-cuts didn't show up enough so I added some ink to the edges. I like that it feels old and dirty :)
It is first time for me to use bought paper flowers. They are so beautiful. Somehow the white flower is so yellow on the photo but it's not that color on real.

I used Melody Fairy as my mane image. I flipped her horizontally and after coloring the image with Promarkers I noticed that notes was backward. Ups! So I covered them with white gel pen and re-draw the notes. Lesson learned: some digistamps are not meant to flip! I hope I can remember it :)

Inside of the card is simple as always. Background layer is made with help of Score-pal. Butterflies are stamped with Black ink, colored with Promarkers and die-cutted with matching framelits.
