I have decided to enter a card into this month's House of Cards challenge. it is to create something with lots of texture and/or this colour palette
So, this is a card I made yesterday. I created texture by doing an Ali Reeve technique which is to cover a piece of card or paper (copy paper works too) with torn pieces of masking tape. They must be torn so that you lose the straight edge of the tape and overlap them to create more texture. The messier, the better at this stage. I embossed the piece with That Special Touch mask - watches. I then smoothed over some Vintage Photo Distress ink. again, the messier it looks the better (I think). I sprinkled some clear embossing powder and heat set it. This accentuates the inking caught on the tape edges and the watches (hopefully!) I found the image of the steam punk penny farthing on the internet. I made the card for a friend who has just started doing cycling marathons etc.
See you Saturday
