Simple... yet... Elegant

Elegant simplicity!

I was playing around with the Elegant Lines embossing folder and the etchings in the folder are SO deep that it kept giving me crease lines across my cardstock.  So, I figured if I sprayed the cardstock to moisten it that I wouldn't get those ugly crease lines.  I sprayed my cardstock with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and the Frost White shimmer paint and the results were impressive!

I simply LOVE these half-pearl embellishments. They have adhesive on the back so they can be easily placed anywhere on your artwork!
Here's my card (if you want, you can click on the picture for a closer view).

The Rich Razzleberry DSP was created using the Presto specialty paper and sponged with Rich Razzleberry.  This cardstock is awesome!  You can spritz it, sponge it, smooch it, and the designs on the cardstock just POP! Smiley from I just LOVE IT!
