White on White

You might know this already, I love white on white!   Recently have enjoyed the Less is More Challenges, its a stretch and putting an inky altered twist on something very precise and structured is an interesting challenge.

So when I saw that this weeks Less is More challenge is white on white had to smile, especially as the White on White style tends to be layers of white material and texture.

A4 car cut in half one piece run through Big Shot with cuttlebug folder embossed image cut out.   Half card folded into A6 card stamped with Sheena Poppy embossed with White WOW Powder. Embossed card stuck on with sticky buds.

Difficult to photograph but you can make out the poppies top left, enlarging may help.

  14. If you hadn't mentioned the poppies, I wouldn't have spotted them! These white on white cards are quite tricky to photograph!

    You mentioned the flat bows I used on my card, they're actually really easy to do - check out the tutorial on my friends' blog:

    Hope that helps, xx
