Beauty in White

Hi Angels!

I was busy watercoloring and almost forgot to post.

I am going to try & make my posts earlier in the day. In true artist fashion, schedules and me are not friends but I’m working on it.

Tonight’s beauty is my oldest daughter and son-in-law’s anniversary card. I haven’t worked in white on white for awhile so dug into my pearlescent papers to create their card.

I used Penny Black’s Layered Scene dies and Creative-Expressions Happy Anniversary Mini Shadowed Sentiments dies. The different patterns in the pearlescent paper offer interest and contrast which gives the white on white depth and keeps it from looking flat.

If you are creating in white on white different white patterns is the key to a great card. You can use variations between smooth & textured by using patterned papers and embossing folders. Silver can add enough contrast for a sentiment to stand out and still keep the card very monotone. Have fun with it and experiment with different tone on tone colors too.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions about tone on tone or if you try this technique to share your creation. I’d love to see your artwork. You can also add it to the comments on my MeWe or Facebook pages for this card.

Enjoy your weekend!

Comments are a blessing.
