White on White Less is More Challenge



This week creating all in white is the challenge at Less is More , and I had several ideas. This is the first one I tried, and it looks incredible in real life. They warned that photos would be as much of a challenge as the card! I wanted some of the white to be shimmery, so I painted the only Impressibility that I own with CTMH Create a Shade pearl paint and ran it through my Cuttlebug using White Daisy card stock. I mounted it on another piece of card stock and used foam tape to raise that a bit off the card base. Then I used a MS punch for the butterfly, painted it with the pearl paint and decorated with pearls. I love the ink press look. This is a great wedding card.

Now I'm off the try my other idea - more embossing and punches involved. Hurray for play day!
