BC277: Texture


Blogger's Challenge today is texture and while I have just a tad on my card, I do have some.  I used the polka dot embossing folder from Quick Kutz on my background.

For the background of my butterflies I used the direct to paper method with my Color Box Paintbox ink from Clearsnap.  The colors were chosen based on the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge this week and my square card is for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge which Stampotique is sponsoring this week.

I kept it very CAS without a lot of color today, using the white layer on white card base.


Hope you will join us at Blogger's Challenge this week to use texture and for your chance to win a $30 Stampotique gift certificate for stamps, join us at CAS-ual Fridays.

Such a sharp, zingy card! I think the polka dots are great - so subtle against those vivid colours...
