Less is More this week

Less is More this week is Colour...............but actually metallic.......... I've searched my craftroom high and low and I know I have some metal somewhere.....but do you think I can find it?

So I did the next best thing........The black is actually a graphite grey pearlised card on which I printed a frame of damask flowers. If you take the card out of the printer quickly and sprinkle with embossing powder you can then heat emboss.........which I did with silver. The sentiment is printed directly onto the white card and an aperture cut in the graphite grey, so it shows through. But as you said it is a devil to photograph and show it at it's best!

Super embossing. I've tried embossing straight from the printer but it didn't work. My printer ink must dry quickly! x
