Texture Challenges!


Both The Lily Pad Blog and Moxie Fab World are running a texture challenge at the moment so this is my entry for both challenges.
 My poinsettia flowers are cut using a Sizzix die and then I have run them through a herringbone  embossing folder before shaping and sticking together adding some seed beads to the center with Glossy Accents. The leaves are made with the leaf stamp from the Blossom Art set from Hero Arts.
For the background I have stamped my new Flower Dots stamp and embossed in white, its then distressed with Fired Brick and Barn Door distress inks.

I have been busy this morning  making more Piccallili so I can give some away as presents, its back to work for me  tomorrow!!
