White on White for House Mouse Challenge

The challenge on the House Mouse challenge site this week is to use white on white, well, you are allowed to colour your images. I found this quite hard to do, but ended up with this, lots of cuttlebugging to add some texture. I cut the label shapes using my favourite go-kreate label dies

The stamp was coloured with copic markers, and I added glossy accents to the strawberries
a ribbon and a bit of bling on the flowers and I met the challenge

Everyone in blogland seems to have lost their followers, me included. If you have gone walkabout, come back here at once, I'm lonely........
No more drips from the drip, in fact I wish it would start leaking again so that we can trace where it's coming from. I am still sobbing at having to throw away my lovely Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper, why couldn't it have leaked into my box of old scraps........

Enfys this white on white is beautiful, I think I would struggle with it too but you have done an awesome job.

I wish my followers would come back too, it's strange without them.

That is a difficult challenge. I'm not sure I could poull it off as well as you did. I love the image of the mice. It reminds me of on of my kids favorite books called the little mouse and the big red strawberry. It is written in 2nd person which makes it a stand out for me, too. Quite a difficult task. Hope your drip is cleared up soon. Today we have contractors pulling the siding off of our house for repairs from a hail storm in March. The roof was last week...they sure make a lot of noise and my dog is losing his marbles. We are coming over for tea

You really did a beautiful job on this card. I'm not sure I could have ever come up with one for this challenge! My eyes are welling up at the thought of your BG paper loss. So sorry.

My followers ran away from home last week. It was a blogspot problem and they came back the next day. I was very worried about them.

hugs, eileen
