ART FROM THE MAIN HOUSE: Sunday Postcard Art Challenge

Linda is our host at Sunday Postcard Art this week, and she is sending us off to Paris to create art!  I hope you will take some time this week to join us in creating something for this challenge.

My postcard this week was a simple one to create as I used a Sizzix "texture fade" die folder to create dry embossing on my paper (cut to 6" x 4").  I then used a sanding block to rub off most of the raised surfaces, revealing the white core of the paper.

Thanks for stopping by today and for taking a moment to leave a comment.  I appreciate both!


  1. Love this Kay, I really like this embossing folder xx

  2. What a fabulous postcard your artwork is gorgeous.

  3. So effective... I always forget about embossing folders and how lovely they are! Love this postcard.

  5. Love this, it looks really complicated and I was very surprised to read how you created it ! So glad you're back too !

  6. Simple and so striking. My kind of a card. Just lovely Kay. I think I need to take out my embossing folders and play a bit.

  7. Hi Kay! That's so good to read you again my lovely friend.
    Thanks also for your kind comments on my blog, sorry I haven't had time to come on yours yet since you restart blogging! But I'm sincerely happy you did!
    This simple card is beautiful, your embossing folder is great (with Paris!...:o) and the way you revealed the pattern is perfect!!

  8. It looks just fabulous, Kay - I love the white look you've created with the sandpaper!
