One of the requirements is to make something with Texture and when I saw this I immediately thought I might make something with metal but the impossibly talented Tracy Evans made an incredible piece of art in the style I would have attempted so I thought I might make a different sort of card using my wonderful Wendy Vecchi stamps as Creative Expressions are the main stockist of Wendy's wonderful products!
I took a piece of Core’dinations card (which has it's own texture!) and embossed it with a Tim Holtz Texture Fade and then sanded the raised areas. I then rubbed Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the sanded areas to give it a grungy feel. I also die cut a piece of kraft card which is at the back of the pink card on the finished piece and will have my message for the recipient on it. I cut a piece of kraft card to fit within the aperture of the Ornate Plate and stamped a sentiment from Wendy Vecchi's Card Art Essentials stamp set in Jet Black Archival Ink. The little hearts were coloured by stamping some Barn Door Distress Stain on my craft mat and, using a small paint brush, painted the hearts - I needed a steady hand as they are tiny! The ornate plate had a little white paint rubbed into it and then wiped off. This highlights the texture on the plate but of course metal is an additional texture too!

So, this is my interpretation of 'Texture' - what will you do?
