I was in my element as I was making this card. Add lots of texture and some vintage images and I'm happy. This week there were several beach/water challenge themes and a couple challenges calling for texture. I started with a piece of kraft cardstock and embossed it using one of Tim Holtz's texture fades. I then added distress embossing powder to the bottom of the panel to represent sand. I used Tim's Chevron die to die cut the waves. I added distress glitter to the waves like white caps. Texture fades, distress embossing powder, and distress glitter are all texture techniques that Tim Holtz uses to add texture to his art. The beach house and bathing beauties are stamps from Artistic Outpost as is the sentiment.
I will be adding my card to these challenges: Kraft Journal -- water, water everywhere; Marks Finest Papers Friends of Speedy --beach theme; A Vintage Journey -- texture; Addicted to CAS -- texture; V's Sweet Ideas --Summer fun; Art With Heart -- summer celebration.
