Touches of Texture

This is going to be a well-used, well-loved set -- I can tell!  I can't wait to experiment more with this. I was pleasantly surprised at the flexibility of the Festive folder.  I didn't think that it would lend itself to this kind of project, but it totally did!

Sitting Here!

Here is another one of the preview sets from the SU! 2016-2017 catalog -- Sitting Here.  There are all sorts of items that can decorate the swing -- pillows, potted plants, cat, dog, basket and a bird.  I stamped and watercolored the swing image, pots and pillows, then adhered them to the Brick Wall background.

Love You Lots!

Feast your eyes on the new SU! In-Colors for 2016-17!  The card base is Dapper Denim and the layer is Emerald Envy; the swirl is cut from Flirty Flamingo with a die from the Swirly Scribbles framelits -- which I can tell that I'm going to love!  I pierced along the swirls to give it some extra texture.
