Today's card was inspired by The PaperArtsy Shades of White Challenge....
Love all the inspiration but the one that inspired today's card is from Wanda
She used stencils to great effect and was thinking about the tissue technique ...
The background is the tissue technique in white tissue sprayed with pearlescent.
The two trees in the background have been done through a stencil,
with gritty structure paste.
The tree in the foreground is a die cut with the paste on top.
The poinsettia has also been done through a stencil with the paste
and glitter gel mixed together and then fussy cut.
I have never used a stencil and fussy cut before.....
Finished off with the die cut sentiment.
Lots of texture and a little bling too on my card.....

What a wonderful card! It's so beautiful. Thank you for playing along in the Rubber Dance November Theme challenge. xx Susanne.
White on white is my nemesis... Trying to capture dimension and interest with one colour is not easy but you make it appear so... This is so beautiful and I love the textured look you created!
Texture and dimension, Mac! I would never have thought to use stencils in this way! This is awesome!
White on white, that is such a difficult thing to pull off but you have done it swimmingly! This is so gorgeous! All your layers of elements and textures really create a wonderful winter wonderland, love love love! hugs :)
Wow the tissue sprayed background is fabulous with all your lovely white trees and flower.
This is stunning. I love all the dimension and texture you created on this card x
What an awesome White creation! The pearlized tissue was some lovely texture for a background, and your stenciling is perfect. Love the dimension of the design, and of course, that absolutely gorgeous poinsettia. Well done! TFS & Hugs
Gorgeous white-on-white card, Mac. Can't believe that this is the first time using a stencil or fussy-cutting. You did an amazing job. I have never fussy cut a pasted stencil image, but this is so cool. First time I think I've ever seen that. Now I want to give that a try!! xx
wow...so elegant and lovely, winter whites!!
Beautiful and elegant card, Mac.Love the background.
w on w is not easy in my opinion but I do think the key is to use different textures and this is a masterclass in that! Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges.
So elegant. Needs to be framed and enjoyed all winter. Love the tissue paper in the background covering only a square of the background.
I love white on white, Mac. Such an elegant card. Kisses, my friend.
I love your all white card. The tissue is a really neat background technique and the textures on the die cuts really are nice. Great job with this challenge!
You've rendered me speechless with your gorgeous white-on-white card, Mac! The techniques (fussy cutting of the poinsettia...oh my stars!), the images, the tissue, the shimmer...breath-taken-away elegance! LOVE! So thrilled you shared this work of art at INKspirational. In awe....
Wow, Mac ... what a stunner ... the texture, the dimension, the white on white ... so glorious! I just want to run my fingers over it!! Hugs, Anita :)
I just love white on white cards Mac and this one is a real stunner. Well done again, thanks for the good wishes also ;) Viv xx
This is a particularly gorgeous card. Such lovely texture and design. Should be a winner! Oh - and thanks for your comment on my blog! Smiling here.
Gorgeous white on white card, Mac! It's amazing that there are so many kinds of texture all in white! I especially love the white/pearly tissue paper backdrop! Hideko xx
wow this is just stunning - love the texture.
This is gorgeous Mac and I love the wonderful dimension with the texture paste trees and the way you have used the texture paste on the die cut tree and also for the poinsettia and then cut it out, what a great idea. The tissue paper background adds even more texture and love the sparkle too. x
Your poinsettia looks stunning. I love how you added an extra dimension to the petals using templates and paste. They look like they were carved in the snow. What an amazing idea. Great and great inspiration, Mac, thank you very much!
Love this all white card. Adding texture and dimension by fussy cutting a stenciled image after you added the paste is so clever and worked beautifully - must try that. Thanks for joining us at Stamps and Stencils.
This is absolutely stunning - what a beautiful piece - Thanks for joining us at stamps and stencils. Hugs rachel xx
