Textured Fun Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi everyone and welcome to the Textured Fun blog hop. Today we are showcasing the Textured tiles stamp set.

You should have arrived here from the lovely Wida Miller.
I am so, so honored to be hopping with these AWESOME card makers. These are some seriously talented ladies and I am humbled to be in such company :)

Without further ado I give you my card:


Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE color!  I have been told I have a "colorful" personality, (which I take as a compliment) he,he!
For this card I drew heavy inspiration from the African Ndebele prints.

Don't you just love the color and geometric prints?
I used the single outline triangle along with my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig to create the pattern. I also used the strip of tiny triangles to create a border and the tiny little ones to fill in and add something extra.
I colored the triangles in with copics and then used a clear, ZIG wink of stella brush to add some shimmer. I then used glossy accents to add some dimension.  I mounted the strip to a piece of wood paper. I die cut the bottom edge with a pinking border die. The sentiment is from the Avery Elle Blooming banner set. For the background I used the striped rectangle in the textured tiles set that I heat embossed with clear embossing power.

Now what is a hop without a giveaway?  ;)
