Some Texture for Digital Tuesday

Please click here for Word Play Weekend Challenge #3.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Happy Tuesday everyone and thank you so much for visiting my blog!
It's time for a new challenge over at Digital Tuesday (see link in sidebar) and this week Amy is our hostess. She would like to see some

Texture.

That can be embossing folders or powders, fabrics, anything goes, as long as there is some texture on your projects.

This week we are being sponsored by "The Stamping Boutique" and Tracey, the owner of TSB generously let each Design Team member choose an image from their store. I fell in love with this "Valentines background", and thought it would be perfect to use for a textured card. I knew right away I was going to use popup dots for parts of this gorgeous image.



To make this card I printed it out a few times, so I would have enough parts to cut out for my popped up pieces.

Everything has been colore
d with derwent coloursoft pencils. I used a couple cuttlebug embossing folders for the card front. Added some ribbon and a button and then after photographing it I realized I forgot to add a sentiment. But I'll add it as soon as I get a chance.

Here is a better view of the image with the popped up parts.



I'd love to enter this card to the following challeng
es:
That should be all for today.
I hope you'll get to join us this week, there is a fabulous prize of 5 digis from our sponsor, the stamping boutique, up for grabs.


And one last reminder, if you love Penny Black stamps and would like to be part of the Penny Black at All Sorts Design Team be sure to enter your card now. There are only a few more days left to enter for a chance to be chosen as a DT member, and of course for a chance at winning one of the amazing prizes!

Have a great day!!
