Seize The Birthday - White Space


Hello, we've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday - we want to see 'white' space on your card ('white' being open unadorned space on your card that allows the focal point of your card to shine).

This is version 2 of my card - you can see version 1 below.


My original intention was to use the diecut flowers as a mask while I coloured the background.  You could argue that this works on two levels: the white space is actually the focal point, and the coloured background becomes the 'white space'.  But I thought that might be pushing the definition a bit far, so I went with the conventional white space, but I couldn't resist some black splattering.  Well, it didn't look finished...


The flowers were already coloured from the masking process, so I just added a bit of detail with coloured pencils.


Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog to see some more fabulous creations from the team, and play along with us.
