Add Texture and/or use the Colour Pallette at House of Cards Challenge ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. The beginning of the month means that it's a new challenge at House of Cards Monthly Challenge. We have a choice for you this month, you can add or create texture on your card or you can use the colour choice or you can do both. Being me I typically wanted to use both, lol, and here is my card which I hope will inspire you …
First up I must apologise - I had issues photographing this card because the gold paint is so reflective. I had to photograph the card at different angles because of the reflection from the gold paint.
I used a combination of stamped and embossed leaves and purchased leaf embellishments.
I just adore the texture I was able to create with acrylic paint and a heat gun.
This is how the card looks straight on.
And this is how rich that gold is when you move the card
A final look, the texture and the gold paint create a lovely rich autumn colour pallette
