Less is more - White on White

The Less is More challenge this week is white on white...Well, it hasn't been easy! I made three cards before this one that all looked more like the royal wedding cake than a LIM card! I started again with a clean slate and came up with this:
I embossed Stampendous ruffled blooms in white on to parchment paper, painted it with indenting fluid (Something that was around years ago before they invented H2Os!) and used an embossing tool on it from the back. Now it looks a bit yellow in this shot, but that is just the light reflecting. Here is a close up to show you the dots of glitter glue.
The leaves were cut with a Marianne die. I finished it off with some embossed lines in the other corner. What? You want to see my wedding cakes?! Go on then...

I'm so glad I started again! Thanks for looking!

  11. Well I have to say I like them all Sally but your final one is absolutely stunning. The flower is so beautiful and is perfectly balanced by the embossing in the opposite corner.

    Those cakes look totally scrumptious too. I think I should have come for a few lessons before attempting the cakes Jenna wants me to make for the 'cake stall' at her Summer Garden Party wedding in 10 days time, lol!

  15. Well, your wedding cakes are all very pretty! But you've really surpassed yourself with that gorgeous flower. Must dig out my raising and indenting fluid - but it's so old it's probably gone solid by now! xx

  19. Hi Sally
    I just googled raising and identing liquid as I found a bottle but hadn't a clue what is was for and guess what - your blog came up - all is now clear ----as mud. I guess it is just a pearlising liquid that you can add colour to?? Loving this card - got that stamp too.......
