Challenge 18 - Theme

We're making the theme a little easier this time as our last theme of mixed messages only saw 3 players join us - so this time all we want is for you to ADD TEXTURE to your project.  You can do this with embossing - wet or dry, using paste, gesso, textured fabric, wood or even scrunching up some paper - let's get inventively textural....


Deborah is away with family this weekend so will be a little late with her inspiration project.


I used lots of texture in my simple guys card - texture is great on masculine projects where you can't do bows and flowers!  I used an embossing folder on kraft and flipped it for the reverse both for colour contrast and I wanted the depressions to show rather than raised lines.  I then added some textured hessian ribbon and a stripe of washi in gold over that to tie the colours to my sentiment panel.  The sentiment is from My Guy is embossed in gold for more texture, cut with a nestie and mounted with foam tape on the next sized nestie.   Hope that gives you lots of ideas!

Link up your creations below - submission deadline is Thursday 29th May, 5.00pm BST (Noon EDT).  Have fun!


  1. OK, it's only taken me six months to get myself organised enough to join in but I finally did it! Love the neutrals of your masculine sample Tara. Thanks for the challenge!

  2. Just made it! Sorry I'm so disorganised :)


Thanks so much for stopping by - we do appreciate your comments. Hope you are having fun with our challenge :-)
