This is a week of firsts for me. First my blog and now my first blog challenge. This week’s BasicGrey challenge is ‘Textured Creations’. I must admit to being inspired by one of the DT’s projects and using Anthea’s project as a starting point I have created my own textured card. The patterned square has been stitched, the dotted layer has been ribbled, the vertical strip has been embossed (though it doesn’t really show in the photo) and matted and the greetings strip has been printed using my computer and stapled. I traced the flower from the patterned paper and made a template for the felt flowers which have been layered, stitched and finished with a button. I love the way the colours and textures have worked together, but then you can’t go wrong using my fave BasicGrey papers can you? I’m going to send it to my friend Alison whose birthday is next week.
