Texture it

Hello and welcome to another Wednesday and a new tag for Dragon's Dream Tag it on  This week the challenge has been set by another of the talented team Frankie has put together this time is is Wanda who's directions are Texture it.

Well if you know me you know I love texture so bring it on.    Starting with the stamp set I chose, Creative Expression Vintage Photography, the idea was to have lots of texture and images.   Photographs are all about capturing the moment but they are flat with a smooth texture does not stop them showing all the pimples and creases. LOL   Glassine paper run through Big Shot with circles folder, because of the brittle nature of this paper the resulting embossing is very crisp and cuts through the paper in where the impression is deep.   The paper had been pre crumpled further giving it a distressed look.   A piece of green colour core card cut to tag shape and embossed with the diamond pattern and then sanded.   The photographer image stamped in black on the tag and then on the Glassine which was lined up to match the tag's image.    A mother and child image and another of a hand clasped couple were then stamped on.

A broken UTTE sunflower has been added as has a clay watch face both of these were highlighted with gold rub on defining the texture.   The button is patterned on one side and smooth on the other contrasting textures, an old rubber washer surrounds this.    Friendly Plastic scraps made into the row of flowers at the bottom and some the the TH film strip tops it off.

A feast of texture and great fun to put together.   Will you have join us this week with your textured tag?
