Easy Peasy Texture

While playing with fabric (to add soft texture to cards) I also came across a few fabric-like items that are perfect for cardmaking.

Again, I found a stamp that mimicked fabric … Crazy Quilt CG477 from BasicGrey/Hero Arts. The burlap ribbon is from Close To My Heart and the bowtie embellishment is from Basic Grey. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, the ink Cup O’ Joe.

This shabby chic paper (Close To My Heart) looks like it could be fabric, so I paired it with a canvas sticker (also from Close To My Heart).
The paper rosette (from the same paper collection) is topped with a fabric covered button (Close To My Heart) stamped in pigment ink.

Who says fabric is just for sewing?
Thanks for coming by.

  1. Lovely.

  2. You’re right–fabric does add a rich texture to these designs. So nice! You know… I wonder what would happen if you took a scrap of fabric, brayered it with it, then turn it over and brayered it again so that the ink transferred to your paper/card stock? More effort than your tips here, but… Could be interesting! 🙂

    • Oooooh, what a cool idea! I did have a friend who inked up some burlap ribbon and pressed the inky side on a card for a cool, very lightly textured effect. Hmmm…. worth a try! I think a highly textured fabric would work best. Go play!
