Lawnscaping Challenge #88: Texture

I just can't help it.  I see the word TEXTURE and immediately grab an embossing folder.  I just LOVE them!   This time was no different as I joined in for the Lawnscaping Challenge this week.  I even grabbed a sketch from my friends over at Freshly Made Sketches for this one!

This time, my trusty embossing folder didn't quite cut it though.  I had stamped the birch trees in Saddle Ink using my new Season of Thanks My Acrylix stamps from Close to My Heart.  I then ran the paper through with the falling snow embossing folder, sanding it down for the snow to show in front of the trees.  Brilliant, right?  Eh.  Not so much as it totally lost dimension AND the ink sort of left a brownish tinge due to my haste.  Stickles to the rescue!

See the difference they made?

You can REALLY see the texture with the lighting at this angle...

Even if it is 90 degrees in the shade outside, it is snowing in here!  :)

Thanks for popping in!  :)
