Some Texture!

Our new challenge no26 at International Art and Soul (here) is for Texture on your creation. Our design team have created some amazing projects for you to see and enjoy.

I created this for my son's birthday in mind, he's a bit of a graphic artist himself so I'm hoping he likes it.  I took a piece of corrugated cardboard and peeled it apart.  Into the spray box and attacked it with all sorts of Mr Huey's paint mists and Tim Holts Distress Paints until I was happy with it, great fun!  I've also edged some Treasured Gold wax on there too.

The bird is from a set of Spellbinders nested Birds that I've had for ages, gilding wax on it too. There's a small piece of hessian ribbon behind the bird, it's always shredding whenever you touch it and little tie of raffia on the edge to finish.

Please come and join us at International Art and Soul with your creations. It doesn't have to be a card for you to enter.

I love your card Jennie, lots of lovely textures. I wish I'd used burlap and corrugated card instead of the darned organza, it was awful trying to get it to stay in one place. lol Hazel x

This card is so cool! It has so much texture to it that I actually had to sit for a while and look at everything that you did . Just so gorgeous !
