Texture and flowers

Good afternoon and welcome to a post to announce the start of a new theme/ sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations. 
Here is my DT card for your inspiration.


This month our theme is -

or you could use this sketch to get your creative juices flowing.

or use both like I did!

I started with some plain white card which I ran through an EF to create a woodgrain effect texture, then I used a NEBUS MFT square stitched frame die. I should have done it the other way around but the central panel was still quite textured so I decided to leave it as it was. A selection of flowers and leaves from the Frames and Flowers set were stamped then fussy cut and placed on the frame.
On another panel of white card I repeat stamped the ink splats from the Mixed Media Elements set in blue, then centered the textured central panel over the top and glued down, the sentiment from Balloons and Banners was stamped in black and the frame popped up on pads to complete.

OK, that's about it from me. For even more inspiration please check out the rest of the fab DT and wonderful GDs, Swapna and Tanvi.

I'd like to join in over at -

  6. Such a beautiful card. Loving the layout and the texture. Clever idea to leave the inside of the frame white and let the texture do the talking.
