Lawnscaping Challenge #137

TEXTURE is the theme for  Lawnscaping Challenge #137.  I love texturizing anything! :)

I made this card that has a couple of texture techniques.

I used a Tim Holtz mini stencil to add leaves to the card front.  I tinted embossing paste with different colors of distress ink and then applied it to the stencil.  I used vellum that I cut  with Lawn Fawn's Scalloped Borders on both sides to make a banner and then heat embossed the sentiment in white. The leaves were cut from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Leaves die set and then I colored them with Copics. I added them to the vellum banner in a bunch.  I wasn't sure when I started what I was going to do but then I just kept at it till I got this result, I do like how it turned out.

See you soon....

CAS(E) this Sketch #188

The CAS(E) this Sketch challenge this week features this sketch.

Here's the card I made.

I just love these stamp sets by Essentials from Ellen.  I used All Inside and the accessories for the bear, Bear Ware. :)  So cute!!    First I did the background by blending distress inks, and I die cut the card front.  I copic colored all the images, die cut them(the die cuts the bears arms so he can hold his accessories) and then adhered them to the card front with foam squares.  I also applied glossy accents to the hearts and the bears nose.  The greeting is  heat embossed in white on black card stock.  The bear and his buddy are just adorable!  The Bear Ware set has tons of accessories for the bear to hold, I can't wait to try some of the others.

Thanks for coming by....

Supplies:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Bundled Sage.  Dies: SSS Postage Stamp Edge,Essentials by Ellen All Inside.  Ranger Fine White embossing powder.
