A little "Off"

Today's card uses the technique called Dye Whitewash from the August 2013 issue.  I had a couple of friends over for a Friday stamp day and we decided to give this technique a try.  I really love the subtle color that it gives to the image.  While playing with the technique, we used my friend's white detail embossing powder.

Tonight as I finished the card up with a sentiment, I grabbed my white detail embossing powder.  Who knew that White Detail embossing powder would have different whites.  Sheesh!  Mine is more "Off" white than real white.  So.....what was I to sentiment was Off White and the image was White.....       So, I decided to make the card base and the butterflies in off white as well so that it didn't look like a mistake.  It worked out fairly well, making the image popping more from the card.

I hope that you like!   The image is from Stampendous and the words are from Stampin Up...I think!

Love this. Your colours on the flower are so soft and pretty. I have this same stamp and it' gone unloved.

I think it's beautiful and love the colors you used. I may have to "case".
