MIM #74-Stamping on Texture

This week's Make It Monday  features Heather Nichols showing us a technique that I have not used before, but plan to use again and again.  I really like how this changes the look of embossed images :)


I needed a masculine card for my friend's husband who is dealing with some health issues.  I think this does the trick.


My Card ~
Cardstock:  base card and birdcages stamped on Stamper's Select White from PTI; Kraft and shadow blue tags and orange stars CS are from Michael's 
Stamps:  Writing Background from Hero Arts stamped onto embossed tag; Birdcage from Studio G, sentiment printed on my computer
Tools & Embellishments:  Birds and Swirls embossing folder from Cuttlebug; Banner Borders die from PTI; brown and white twine, flower brad and natural hemp from AC Moore

Thanks for stopping by :o)
