Moxy Fab - Textured to Perfection
This is my first Moxie Fab World Challenge, though I have joined in on the a number of Tuesday Trigger Challenges. The challenge is to make a card that incorporates texture in an innovative way. I love texture and always try to add some to my cards. For this card, I challenged myself to look for ways to add extra texture. To get started, I grabbed this beautiful seashell embossing folder by Sissix and embossed Kraft card stock. I then distressed the edges of the panel. I immediately knew I wanted to use the clam shell gather from Artistic Outpost. To further the texture of my card, I tore around the image to reveal the soft paper at the core. I wrapped the panel in baker's twine and then added raffia as a bow to heap on more texture. Where I might have added stamped seashells, for today's card, I added real seashells and some pearls. The entire panel was mounted to white card stock. I thought the accent panel lacked texture so I added some with Copper Liquid Pearls for tactile appeal. Everything was mounted on a textured peach card base. Thanks for stopping by.
