Good Morning Cardmakers!
Thank you to those who joined in with Svenja's Elemental Inspiration Picture challenge last week, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
It's me, Kathy here with this week's challenge and I'd like to dare you to step beyond the smooth and the flat and get all
"Touchy Feely" We'll have no "single layer" cards here this week, oh no! this time it's
all about using lots of interesting texture so that you card
feels as good as it looks!
You could include fabrics (velvet, hessian. etc),
metals, suede, leather, cork. texture plates, bumpy paint techniques - anything that
makes your card interesting to touch as well as being a feast for the eyes.
Have fun, experiment and get creative - then come and link your cards so we can all be inspired by you!
