I have only ever made one all white card before and really was not happy with my results so I challenged myself to make an all white card AND not use any pretty papers!!

I chose this cute image Licky Tiggy Tiger by Barbara Jensen.  I know white tigers are rare but they do exist and I knew that I could add the black colour to the stripes and the palest pink to the fleshy parts like nose, pads on the paws and ears. I added some glossy accents to the nose and paws and cut the image out suing a Nestabilities die.

The main backing paper is a Boofles embossing folder on it’s first outing since I bought it months and months ago. It is like a patchwork effect so has quite a few different textures on it. I also used a second layer with a cuttlebug folder which has a bark effect, I thought it would emulate the stripes on the tiger. I used scissors to distress and roughen up the edges and attached a lacy edged ribbon to it following a sketch from A Die For A Sketch.

Finally I used a sentiment which was a freebie from TLC Creations and die cut it with a Nestabilities die. Both the image and sentiment have been mounted on 3D foam and this whole card is full of texture.
