Good morning and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Hope you have had a good week ... mine hasn't been the best as I have been laid low by a really rotten stinking cold for over a week now. For some reason when I get one it is always really bad and takes a lot of shaking off. I've still been going into work but it's really taken it out of me, so thank goodness the weekend is here!! So I'm hoping to get some rest for at least part of the weekend and hopefully turn the corner!
Thanks very much to everyone who joined in last week's Anything Goes challenge - a brilliant variety of cards :-) Don't forget to check out the main challenge blog to see if you are a winner.
This week our theme for you is
So we would like to see all sorts of yummy texture on your cards.
This week's fab prize is a $20 store voucher from 1-2-3 Stitch.
The other ladies have been very busy making fabulous strokable cards .. here's mine.
When I first saw the theme, the thing that came immediately into my head was the concept of "fluffy snow" , and I also thought that concentrating on texture chimes very well with making a white-on-white card ...and as luck would have it there are quite a few white challenges around right now!
I coloured my image using Promarkers, and decorated it "fluffy snow" made from flowersoft mixed with glamour dust ... although it doesn't seem to have stuck very thickly (I think my glue pen was running quite dry!). I also went for further texture with dry embossing on pearlised white card, glitter card, glittery white lace and shimmer-edged ribbon ... hope this all counts as "touchy-feely"!! :-)
Main image: Penny Black "Royal Mail" (3766J) coloured wtih Promarkers and decorated with Alpine White Flowersoft mixed with glamour dust;
Supplies: white sparkly lace, ribbon, brad and pearls from my stash;
Tools: large circle and large scalloped circle nestabilities; Cuttlebug two different "Snowflakes" embossing folders and large snowflake die.
