Well while it looks all white is but there is some of my favourite periwinkle foundation card.
I stated by stamping the Glazed tile design stamp to die for in perfect medium and embossed it in true white detail embossing powder. I die cut the apart in the centre using the matching die from the Greek island Kefalonia die set. Next I die cut the next die down in the set into coconut white card and foam mounted the stamped piece above it.
Next I cut a frame for the stamped image using the largest die in the kefalonia set I then cut this piece to a rectangle and foam mounted it over the stamped image. I then cut the periwinkle piece to a thin border around the white rectangle and cut the next white layer to match. I then added a layer of white at the back and again cut it to leave a border and I added a stamped pierced flag layered up in the blue with the larger pierced flag.
To decorate the card I cut some of the cornflowers in the white card and coloured the edges using broken china distress ink and a smoothie. I added a group of stick on pearls in the centre of each and placed them on a spray of delicate fronds cut in the periwinkle.
