Touchy feely texture

Sorry about the problems with Mr Linky last week everyone, thank you for sharing your great men's cards in the comments and later with our great new inlinkz tool so great to see your work on the page. Some great ideas you all shared again, who says men's cards are difficult to do? It's so exciting visiting you all and seeing all your different styles and takes on a theme.

This week is all about texture, time to get out those fibres and ribblers and pastes you have tucked away. For me (Zoe) texture adds so much dimension to a piece not necessarily touch but the illusion of texture. Try brushing Rangers Daubers over wet PVA glue it will crack in line with the brush strokes! great effect but still smooth to stamp on. So while you are recovering from the Bank Holiday and keeping the family occupied for half term - sympathy to those of you with youngsters in the middle of their GCSE's - have a play with what ever you have to hand and get away from it all with some touchy feely craftin'.

We have a great prize this week from Tanda Stamps just leave a link to them in your post to be in the random draw.


Exciting news to share with you our very own Michelle is a published designer, check out the July issue of Craft Stamper to see Michelle's beautiful Oriental ATCs themed around Haiku poems she and her brother composed.


Take care and have fun.

  9. I've added a link to Tanda stamps too. The site was in pounds so I didn't know if other countries were included in the shipping ;)

    Loving all the cards and wish I could comment but trying to fend off my friends dog while I type makes for hard going!
