Today's Blogger Challenge was to "Texturize" your project. I love texture on cards as it adds so much to the overall design. I may have went a bit over board on mine but I like how it turned out. I had no sketch, color scheme or design in mind when I started working on this card. It just evolved all on it's own.
I started out thinking that I wanted to use a piece of Cork on my card to add some texture. So I used my Butterfly Die (Amuse Studio) and cut out the large cork butterfly and then the smaller butterflies using designer paper. I picked a scrap piece of paper out of my scrap box and decided to use that and matched my colors accordingly. For added texture and visual interest I embossed the white portion of the card, used some textured card stock (green piece), added pearls, a punched border with a bit of scalloped texture and then distressed the sentiment panel.
Card Stock: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White-SU, Textured Panel, DCWV and Designer Paper, My Minds Eye(Bloom n Grow). Sentiment Stamp-SU Best Yet, Pearls-Zva, Leaf Die-Sizzix, Punch-EK Success(Scalloped Circle) and Swiss Dot Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug.
