TIO Piece for Texturise It

 Well nearly didn't get this finished, cos I have an ickle bug today, with a raw chest, sore throat and then sickiness to cap it all!!! VERY nice, I hear you cry... well no, not really but I will survive, tee hee. The headache has abated a bit, so I thought I would share this TIO tag with you. The theme we chose to dream about was texture, so I tried to get lots of different ones in...

 With texture, you just HAVE to start with a texture fade - never really understood the name,  but the folders are fab!!  This one is patchwork, and whilst some of the other folders don't emboss evenly (hence "fade" I suppose) this one is fabulous in every respect. I did not use all of it, just some elements, and I used distress inks in wild honey, spiced marmalade, vintage photo and walnut stain to add colour, all spritzed off with perfect pearls heirloom gold... such a clever product to add glimmer and glitzy mica without altering the ink.

So, a best-ever-product has to be the rosette dies, and I had to use them. Small and large here to create a lot of dimension. The clock bit of the texture is enhanced with the clock die hands. Along the base I have added a lovely rosey ribbon which is all smoothe and shiny..

 The base card is from a sheet in the PaperArtsy Thornton Hall stack.. I love this paper, especially enhanced with a strip of lace..  The one real stamp I have used, which is a rule over at TIO, is a texture one with dots on from Stamp in the Hand called field of sky, so useful. Glass beads and a length of gold chain finish off the whole thing.

 So the brief was texture and I think I have managed that... lots of different textures and pretty colour into the bargain...

Thanks for looking and for your comments. I am always pleased when you pop to see me, and I love coming along to see what you are up to... Always looking for inspiration...
Love and Light

Your tag is excellent and I keep seeing more and more in the detail with each picture, yet it isn't cluttered. So well executed.
