Well here we are nearly in the middle of November and it is still warm enough in the south of England to not need the heating on. I'm not sure what happened to the threats of snow by the start of the month but I'm definitely not complaining. Lets hope we can get all the way to January without it!
The challenge for the next two weeks is - Texture: it can be embossing, fabric, embellishments or anything that adds some extra texture to your creation.
I chose the image called Teddy Love this time which you can find here with all of Jenni's lovely images. I coloured it with Promarkers and tried to make the teddy look fluffy. I used a mask to then stamp behind the image instead of having the usual white background. I embossed the gold paper with an embossing plate but I'm afraid I wasn't able to take a good enough picture, you can just about see it at the top of the image. To get some texture into the flowers I took apart some old plastic daisies I have had for donkeys years and added the centres to some new flowers from Wild Orchid and I punched out a felt flower to go behind. It has a few crystals in the centre but again my picture could be a lot better!
