Pure than snow...

Having in mind the theme ''scrapbook page layout card'' asked for the January challenge in forum, I let my mind flow... 
First I prepared the background with silk paper technique for getting some fake gypsum lines, followed with a gesso layer. Then one layer of crystal -white acrylic , matt. 
Found between my scraps this small piece of paper with such romantic lines, of E.E. Cummings  :
You are like snow only 
more pure, more light, like rain
only more sweet, more fragile you. 

Then I construct all the card around this text . 
Start by sponging through a homemade stencil (a piece of fence wire net ) on corners some soft blue color stamp-pad, then stamping with black Staz-on a handwrited lines Stamperia stamp( I choose deep black just for getting a powerful contrast ) .

For the love of stencils (that I developed lately ;) ) ,  I applied a Crystal light modeling paste through a diamond stencil and sprinkled fine semi-transparent glitter on top. 

Then it was time to handle the focal point part. First , for the its background I used some fine-glass microbeads, in washed denim color , glued some metallic findings ( that I previously gessoed and coloured accordingly - most of them remained hidden under the flowers part ) .

A cropped vintage picture framed, some paper and silk roses and other kind of flowers, a strip of painted and one of white gauze along a strip of non-woven fabric, a piece of heat-gunned organza and a little play with some white pearl liner on top of them here and there ... Delicate brush splashes with blue diluted acrylic color over all . 

Distressed the edges all around and the center seemed to be ready.
 It needed another layer : a piece of blue cardstock stamped with the same Stamperia handwriten text , with black Staz-on. For the love of contrasts, again. ;)
Glued finally onto the card base. A white one . Did I mention contrast ? :D
