We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

It can be just black and white ...

The next letter in the Craft Barn's dictionary challenge is E. My first thought was emboss, so I'm going with that!

For a change, I've kept it really simple and used just black and white card, with embossing folders.

There is something quite liberating about creating a project very fast!

I may not be able to visit everyone this time, as I'm going away, but I'll try and catch up later.

Off to bonny Scotland, visiting a friend in the Highlands - hope it's not too cold, but whatever the weather it is stunningly beautiful. Hope to get a few photos for some painting inspiration.

  1. I adore this and I kept wondering what black and white had to do with E. It's a great entry, and quite lovely. I have no embossing folders, so that caught me off guard. It's a beauty, though.

    Have fun in Scotland. Loved the Scotland quote!

  2. With such a beautiful embossing folder you were quite right not to fiddle about too much with the page. I love the elegant simplicity of this.

  3. An elegant card I think! Thanks for joining in the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge xx

  4. Brilliantly done - love the simplicity of this and that embossing folder is beautiful! Elaine x

  5. Very well done, love the embossing.

  6. The Black and white embossing is stunning! Great idea...
    I heard a similar joke about Chicago where the 2 seasons are (apparently) Winter and roadworks!

  7. A very effective page, showcasing the embossing perfectly xx

  8. A great idea to choose Emboss. Black and white always looks so elegant and this is no exception.

  9. Great idea for this one! Love the black and white, looks great! xx

  10. Elegant, simple and perfect.
