Trying something new

Hiya bloggers,
Yesterday I thought I'd try something new, I've not coloured like this before and I saw on the Copic Creations blog 'Colouring white' I've seen hundreds of gorgeous cards made with almost white images and I love them but I didn't think I could do it, well here's my attempt
Copics used for clothes E31 E50 and blender for dress & R00 for boots & lower part of dress.
I kept the papers pale too and did some light stamping around the image and sentiment using an ivy stamp, I used kraft card and the fence & tag (tag under the ribbon bow) are made of cardboard put through the ribbler and painted with crackle paint. I've layered & stitched the papers. All the gorgeous roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've added lace, pearls and cheesecloth, I never knew I could pack so much onto a card, I really enjoyed making this one.
