Here is my last entry for the MIM Papertrey Ink challenge this week. I followed the rules to a T this time, with only one layer over the card base like Erin did. I used lots of textured stamps including a very very very old Stampin' UP! Sale-A-Bration set that had a textured block and watercolored like flowers, so right off the bat I have two forms of texture. I stamped the block in limeade ice and the flower in Hibiscus burst and simply chartreuse. Then I used text style background basics in fine linen ink for just a bit more subtle texture behind everything. I am so excited how this turned out. I used a Think Big Favorites set for the sentiment (it was one of the early ones) in Baked Brown Sugar (SU!). I used Rustic White card stock for my card base and the layer.
A few things I had thought to do to add more texture was to stamp the flower image again in versa mark ink over the colored images and emboss with clear embossing powder, but I sort of forgot as I finished stamping. The other texture element I thought of adding was with the rustic burlap impression plate, but again, in my haste I forgot. Honestly, I think the heat embossing could have been nice to add some real raised texture, but I think the impression plate texture might have been just a tad over the top and been too busy. All in all I am happy with the card even without those two elements.
And I also used a sketch featured in this month's PTI newsletter, where they went back to old design team cards and made a sketch handout for us. Fun. It was the sketch with the rectangle panels on it. If I can figure out a way to put the sketch in this post, I will.
