Truly Scrumptious Challenge 20

Hi crafters

Its time for another Truly Scrumptious challenge.  This week we have a sketch by our fabulous Dawn.  In addition we want to see texture on your cards.   

I created my texture in a number of ways.  The most basic technique I used was to tear paper to create a rough edge which showed the white paper core.  Another technique used was to scrunch up a strip of paper, unscrunch it, and run the ink pad over it to give definition.  Both these techniques require no special equipment.  Another technique was to use one of my embossing folders, which created a more uniform texture, which again I inked the edges and sprayed lightly with mica mist.

The stamped Magnolia image was coloured with alcohol markers, and the grosgrain ribbon created yet more texture.  The papers are new from Stampin Up.  I added a couple of punched snowflakes and some silver studs to finish. 

Why not pop along to Truly Scrumptious and find out what the rest of the design team have done, then have a go at the challenge yourself.

Thanks for taking the time to look, I'd love to hear your comments.

Take care, and happy crafting.
