White as the Primary Color?


Someone over at My Favorite Things wants to make me twitch and it's working. The November Guest Designer Challenge is to "use white as a primary color". I thought white was the absence of color. Aren't the primary colors red, blue and yellow? Was I asleep during those color wheel classes? Okay, I know it's just a catchy name and I really don't have anything catchy to say. In case you haven't noticed I use a lot of My Favorite Things stamps and I like to participate in the challenges and this one is no exception.
Lately I've been partial to making square cards. I have no idea why so I just go with it. I chose to work with the heart stamp from the "Santa Baby" set since kl;rts fit so nicely inside squares. White card stock looks particularly nice when it's emb0ssed so I pulled out my Cuttlebug embossing folders and my SU embossing plates and picked out these three because I thought they would be the best choices for the heart motif. The heart shapes were cut with Nestibilities dies. The pink card stock is from SU. The pin is from Close To My Heart.
I love pink and white together and I am particularly happy with the way this card came out.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you come back again.
