Keeping it Simple

Sunday Postcard Art challenge has a theme this week of "WHITE". This was really fun for me because I just love the pureness that white gives to a creation. This project was pretty simple but I think effective.

Using recycled cardboard I applied PK GLITZ White Pearl Embossing Powder. I then took a Tim Holtz Texture Fade "Postcard" and rubbed DI Pumice Stone all over the embossed side of the Texture Fade and ran my cardboard through the diecut machine. This left the embossed letters with just a hint of shadowing.

Altered my butterfly embellishment by covering it with white embossing enamel and then once cooled chipped away at it. A technique that Mr Tim shared in his wonderful book Compendium of Curiosities (love this book). Rubbed some white paint on top of my muse token to enhance the word "Simplify" and all finished. Hope you enjoyed xoxo Toni

Gorgeous! I just love seeing other people's take on folders that I have. It's nice to look to the other side of the coin.
