Fragments of Texture

Hello all!

It's time for a NEW Stampendous Challenge! Here's a close-up of what it is and I want you to take a guess.


Yep! The theme for the month of February is TEXTURE. Now what is just about the coolest is that Stampendous introduced some new fun stuff called Color Fragments. There are SO many things you can do with them and I was just about thrilled beyond myself when they accepted Copic ink. Oh so cool! I used my markers before and after gluing the Powder Blue Fragments onto the water can. I can imagine these fragments as just about any texture. They can be crushed down to smaller sizes which you can see in the photo above.

So here's the rest of my card. I used the Garden Beauty stamp set and added a border from penciling in the nestabilities die frame before removing it from the die. Then I sketched over the pencil line with my PITT artist marker to match the sketch lines of the stone path in the stamped iamge. This is definitely a do again project!


Now with all Stampendous challenges you can join us for a blog hop and then show us what you've created with the challenge. All the details are below and another exciting hop coming up.
