Trying to get myself in gear this am.....need to get out for a walk before it gets even hotter....
A card to show you this am for the release challenge over at Flourishes - www.flourishes.org/blog
The challenge was 'textures of nature' - the textures included here include the textured cardstock, the gold embossing and then some liquid pearls for the 'snow' and tree ornaments and ect.
I used the 'portrait die' from Accu cut that was designed by my friend Vicki Chrisman www.vickichrisman.blogspot.com
I also used stamps and a die from Flourishes. It is hard to see but the DP is a light blue with brown pattern - I edged the pieces with red and embossed the phrases with red embossing powder.
The center image was colored with prismacolor pencils and cut out with the matching die from Flourishes.
I used a bit of ribbon on the center panel and also used it to tie the 3 way card closed - I believe I got the ribbon from Flourishes too but not sure if they still carry it.
All right, its time for me to get a move on....a couple errands to run and then I will be spending a couple hours cutting strips for my next locker hook rug project because I have all the trays and ect needed for my die now :)
