TSC35:Monochromatic White - Using At Least One Stampsmith Stamp

I can't believe October is behind us and it's time for a new Stampsmith Challenge!  This month's challenge is to create a project using hues of white (i.e. white, ecru, cream, offwhite, etc.) White makes a beautiful backdrop for cards of any theme - especially weddings, Christmas and winter! Of course the  stamped image won't be white, but the rest of your project should utilize a tone-on-tone palette of the ever-elegant white. Be sure to invite a friend and play along for your chance to win a $21 gift certificate to The Stampsmith store!

Here is my project for this challenge using one of my favorite Stampsmith Christmas stamps!

Christmas Cards #1 Sheet
To achieve this look, I stamped the image 3 times using Grey Versafine ink on X-press It ultra smooth paper.  I have used the entire image for the bottom layer, just the center image for the middle layer and just the sentiment for the tag on the front.  I have matted the two large layers with white borders, quilted the centre piece and the plain base layer with embossing folders and assembled the layers with foam tape for some dimension.  I have added a seam binding bow and off-set the sentiment to make it look a bit like a tag and finished the project off with a few pearls.

"Perfect love is to feeling what perfect white is to color. Many think that white is the absence of color. It is not. It is the inclusion of all color. White is every other color that exists, combined. So, too, is love not the absence of an emotion (hatred, anger, lust, jealousy, covetousness), but the summation of all feeling. It is the sum total. The aggregate amount. The everything."
Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God
