Another Square

Hello again.  Here's the other square in a square card that I did.

The layout is from the Less is More Challenge.  I like this better than the card I posted last, but I'm not sure this fits the challenge since there is supposed to be pure white space around the square.  In CAS cards, white space can be any color, it just needs to be free of image, layer or embellishment.  Since Chrissie's & Mandi's cards had white, white space, I wasn't sure if this was on the up and up.  Anyway, even if it doesn't fit this challenge, I love the hot colors!

These are the colors from this week's ColorQ challenge.  I usually don't get my card for this challenge posted in time, but I think I've made it this week.  Check out these fun colors.

I used the Emboss then Color technique.  I used the background stamp from the For All You Do set and stamped it in Whisper White, then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  Then I took my SU Markers and colored the flowers and stems.  When doing this technique with white, you really need good light.  I felt like I was working blind!  Fortunately the ink wipes off the embossing.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  For All You Do
Ink:  Whisper White, SU Markers (Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede)
Paper:  Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Accessories:  White EP, Butterfly from Beautiful WIngs Embosslit

I'm going to see if I can squeeze a few minutes in to work on a couple of ideas that are bumping around in my brain.

Thanks so much for the visit and I really appreciate those comments.

It doesn't matter what colour the 'white' space actually is Bonnie, it's still called white space! (Another one of those things that amuses me no end!) This is another one of your most impressive cards - I love it! Vx
