SSNOTIME78*** WHITE MATS

Hi everyone!! Time for Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge for this Friday.. And it's all about matting your card in white. It gives it a clean crisp feel and makes your focal point really stand out I think.
So you can use multiple mats but at least one of them must be white.
My image is a new one that I snapped up at Stamp Art here in London Ontario from SparklenSprinkle. I simply stamped it in black on white cardstock, colored with Prismacolor pencils, matted in black and then a big white mat. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Check out Sharon's site HERE for all the details***

The rest of the design team will have some awesome creations as well.

Have a great day everyone!!!

The white does look very crisp especially with the black. Love white and black. It looks like you drew the rest free hand.
