Shades of White


was the theme chosen by Hermine on Gothic Arches this week.... Here's mine.... the words say....
Live every day, hope every hope, dream every dream. (stamping done in old paper distress ink) I find it quite difficult to use white ~ I'm more of a bright colour person!

gosh I imagine this WAS really hard for you, colour is what you do. I bet the temptation to stick some colour in was almost unbearable. You've done a really beautiful job though, isn't it amazing what you can achieve when you are pushed outside your comfort zone.

This is very peaceful Mandy - quite a contrast from your usual work!!! Not sure I could do this challenge (would I be allowed a touch of turquoise?)
