Evgenia Petzer’s lovely vintage style is the perfect showcase for showing the beauty of tone-on-tone embellishing! This blue and white patterned paper is so pale that it mostly appears white to the eye. Layering the white embellishments on top of it gives a subtle effect of texture without being overwhelming. What you see instead is the detail of the embellishments, without being assaulted by their color.
The absence of color for the most part makes the single dark large flower an extra powerful focal point because of the sharp contrast it makes to the rest of the design.
