Good morning and happy Thursday. As I'm typing this we are in the middle of the most ridiculously hot weather EVER. We've had hot with sunshine, hot with cloud, and hot with thunder and lightening! I shouldn't be complaining should I, it is Summer after all.
It's also time for a new challenge over at Country View Crafts, and this time the lovely Miriam has chosen Texture. As it's also birthday card season part 2, I made a card for my niece.
I don't see my niece as often as I would like as she lives at the other end of the country, so I never know if she is going through a 'girly girl' or a 'grunge' phase, but everyone likes unicorns right?...
Then I used some thinlits dies to chop areas out. I also stamped the Pink Ink Designs unicorn stamp directly to the card. I stamped it again on a blue background and chopped out shapes and layered them over the original.
To add more texture I choped teeny tiny circles out of different scraps of card and added them.
Of course every unicorn needs a horn, otherwise it's just, well... a horse! I like the pink one, Neil liked the multicoloured one, so of course it had to be the blue!
Horn in place, and stitching and sequins for more texture and we just need a sentiment.
We all need to be unicorns in a field of horses don't we.
This was a fun challenge though it really made me think, which is all good isn't it.
I hope you join in with us, just show us your texture and you could be our lucky winner who gets a £20.00 gift certificate to spend in the store.
Have a very happy week, and thanks so much for looking.
