White out!

Hello all!
An appropriate title for many of us at this time of year - luckily we didn't get hit too badly with snow from Nemo in my part of the Garden State!  Anyway there's a new challenge over at Stampotique (SDC87) and it's 'Winter Whites' which ties up nicely with the 'White on White' challenge at Simon Says Stamp so I'll be entering my card into both of those.
       I decided to use some white heat embossing and a rubber stamp image and then I saw some vellum paper that was just laying around, collecting dust and decided to try using it.  I must say, I love the result and ended up heat embossing a ton of other stamp images as well - I did get a bit carried away!  For this card I used a Janet Klein stamp, Tim Holtz Distress Embossing powder and Stampendous embossing powder.  I cut a pennant shape from white card and ran that through a dotty embossing folder, added a simple sentiment using my Cameo and topped it off with some white ribbon and a couple of stick-on pearls.



                            You'll have to take my word for it that it does look brighter IRL but after playing with Adobe PSE for ages, I just couldn't get it any better without losing the image completely.  I do know it's more of a chicken than a duck but just allow me some artistic license please?

            I may have to try this with other embossing powder colours and maybe some colouring..........


   As well as the two challenges previously mentioned, I would also like to enter this into the following - 

        Thanks so much for popping by to take a look :)
