Less is More wk 14 - white on white

This week at Less is More the challenge is 'white on white', which I didn't think I was going to have too many problems with... you wouldn't believe how long I've spent faffing with my card though, and I'm not at all happy with it!



The photos are a bit rubbish sorry - it is white, not off-white.  I've cut the flowers on the cricut and then embossed them for a bit of texture.  The swirl was cut using a Sizzix die.  Sprayed the flowers and swirl with iridescent 'spray & sparkle' (much to everyone's disgust - hubby and both boys complain about the smell every time I use it!).  Scored some lines on the linen base card with my MS scoreboard, and added a sparkly button from my stash and a sentiment embossed in silver.  I thought it might do as a wedding card, but I don't think I like it enough!

  1. Spray and Sparkle and me haven't got on terribly well in the past. The nozzle became blocked and when I tried to unblock it, the complete contents of the can spewed out without stopping... so various areas in my craft room are delicately twinkled! I did manage to put a rag over it but not before much had escaped!
    I love the scored lines on your card, often I'm not a fan of them, but this looks great. The flower is super too.
    Thanks so much for joining us again!

  29. I think your card is lovely - I used the same two embossing folders on my own floral entry. If you used a couple less lines or maybe left the flourish off - do you think you might like it better?
