It'll be all white on the night!

My friend Hels has been staying this weekend, and what a lot of fun we've been having! We went down to Art From the Heart today to see Dy (and stock up on some stash - I got some of Dina Wakley's new stamps, love 'em!).

Hels hosts her regular Sunday Stamper Challenge, and asked me to be guest "setter" this week, so I chose "white" as the theme.

I had a play with lots of new stuff on this tag - several of the new Distress Stain colours (including white picket fence, obviously), a couple of Dina's stamps and a couple of new techniques! Why not pop over to Hels' blog to see her piece for the challenge?  She made it while sitting at the desk next to me, and it's a stunner!!  Even better, have a go yourself! :)

The stains and ink combo look fantastic! Adore the woman image stamp! Wondered if the circles/dots were stamp(s) or ? Hels pocket is utterly fab! :)
