An al'white' card!

It's just as well The Sugar Bowl is fortnightly or else I'd of been pretty late with my entry..
I finally managed to find a bit of time this week to do a spot of the old crafting...
...where are the days flying off too i do wonder!
Kathy provided the fab sketch with the added prompt to use 'Lace'
Colour Create had 'all white' as the chosen colour this time round.. or should that be non colour!
This was actually harder than i thought, trying to think of ways to make the white 'pop' so i had to add a teeny tiny bit of colour just to define the edges or else it would of looked pants! Hope it still counts!
...
I was going to leave the image very bare, put a slight wash of antique linen distress ink over the entire thing.. but it looked too bare so i used a couple of my lightest copic colours over the top and it turned out really pretty i think... i may just have to colour in this way again as i really like the muted tones.
I finished by adding a coat of my new rock candy crackle paint to the image {although the pic doesn't really show it very well} i also added some of the rock candy stickles to the snowflake and that too looks very subtle but very cool.
This card also fits in with the Creative Card Crew theme this week which is 'snowflakes'
& Winter Wonderland which has an 'open theme'
Thanks for taking the time to stop by...
