Hope all is well?!...
Today, I'm swinging on in to share a card I made for the current Virginia's View Challenge!
It's all about texture and well...ladies (and gentlemen) I have some texture on my card! lol ;)
Where do I even begin?!...Not too CAS, now is it?!...I guess I was going with the whole' texture' on my mind and embossing folders kept sticking to me. I have quite a few that I haven't even used and many that just are plain abandoned my me. So, I needed to change that. ;)
I ended up using an embossing folder that my crafty friend Kimberly sent me (thank you again, Kimberly!!). To show off the embossing, I used some inks and went to town 'sponging/rubbing' them on. Once I had the colors and depth I wanted, I added my sentiment/quote.
The embossing itself is quite beautiful, but I still thought it needed something else. So once again, I used that bird image and instead of a 'blue' bird, I went with a 'green' bird. Did some fussy cutting and added it to my card. Normally, I would have been done a long time ago! lol But again, thought it needed more! (Is this really 'me' saying/thinking this?! lol) Needless to say, I went with sequins. And not just 3 or 6 of them...but 15!! Whoa! lol This has got to be a record for me (besides my few shaker cards I've made.). ;)
I'd love to hear what you think?!...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
