This week’s blog hop theme is Textures and Ribbon! We can use embossing folders, embossing paste, sponging or anything that provides texture on your project! I’ve used a variety of different techniques on my card to give it some depth….collage work, embossing, dimension, and linen thread!
QUIET MEADOW BUNDLE
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Soft Succulent cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 2 x 5-1/4 piece of Soft Succulent In Color 6×6 DSP was added to the right side.
- The 3 x 5-1/4 piece of Basic White cardstock was stamped with the Quiet Meadow floral image with Memento Black Ink and colored with Soft Succulent and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends.
- The dotted background and word cluster were stamped with Crumb Cake Ink in the background.
- The stamped piece was embossed with the Bark Embossing Folder.
- One edge was torn and the edges all sponged with Crumb Cake Ink, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Love was stamped with Soft Succulent Ink on scrap Basic White, then cut with the tag Meadow Die and sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake Ink.
- A Linen Thread bow was tied thru the tag hole and then added to the front of the stem.
- A trio of Elegant Gems were added in the background.
