DYSU #36 - Texture

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Do You Stack up?! We're so glad you can join us again. Our challenge for you this week is "Textures". There are lots of ways you can do this including embossing, adding fabrics, textiles, distressing... the possibilities are endless!

This week's Sponsors:

Love To Stamp
Winner’s Choice of 1 Little Darlings Rubber Stamp

Digi Doodle Shop
$10 Gift Certificate

Pizzazz Aplenty
$10 Prize Package

Here is my creation for this week's challenge:

For this challenge, I was trying to work with what I had already...I didn't have much that was textured and I felt that I was sort of playing out the burlap, lol, so...I embossed and scored all of the papers and used textured cardstock for the card base.  I used SU! Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks and rubbed it over the embossing and scoring to enhance the textured look.   I used this adorable image by the Love To Stamp - Little Darlings collection.  It is called, "Let's Do Lunch", and you can buy the rubber stamp here.  I coloured it with Copic Sketch markers and attached it over the other layers.  I then added twill ribbon, a wooden button, and twine to give more texture.

On another note, I'd also like to wish our team member, Peggy, all the best in her future as she just finished her last challenge with us as a DT member.  Peggy has been with DYSU since the beginning and we'll all miss here dearly and we are sad to see her go, but, I hope we'll continue to see her around blogland!

I hope that you will join us at DYSU and play around with some texture...this definitely is a fun one!
