Yesterday at Lily Pad Cards there was a new fun challenge - all about textures! 
Check it out here
Textures are fun and anything goes - really! I used some core'dinations paper which I embossed for my first card and some tulle to create some extra texture. 

I was inspired by the look & feel of this image from Pinterest.

Stamps: Hero Arts Flourish background CG139, Hero Arts Bird Trio LP169
Other: Sizzix embossing folder, twine, tulle, Ranger sanding block
Paper: coredinations cs, textpaper, kraft cs

For my 2nd card I used some wine cork on which I stamped hearts and applied to this CAS design.

The cork makes a fun texture I think ;) I can see this be used for many designs also as embellishments on scrapbook pages.

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps CL493 Live Life, Many Dots CL519,  
Hero Arts layering paper, distress inks. 

Don't forget to check out the challenge - you'll have a change to win a lovely gift certificate from Simon Says Stamps!

Hvor er de smukke og elegante... skønne farver og så fin med det røde kontrast.
God ide med proppen.
Jeg har set dem på Lily Pad også... når man siger texture... er det så bare noget som er præget på den ene eller anden måde, så som proppen.

God søndag, Lissy

Love both of these, Pia -the bird and text especially on your first, with that wonderful pop of the red twine, and what a wonderful idea to stamp on cork!! Beautifully done!

De er begge smukke på hver deres måde - FED ide med de tre scallops ovenpå hinanden - har ikke lige tænkt over at bogsider kunne vises på den led - smart - så er det jo helt ligemeget hvad der egentlig har stået. =0)
