The Stamp Man - Texture

This fortnight's challenge at The Stamp Man is "Texture". It's Neil's turn to host and he has made a fabulous tag to start us off.
I have gone for simple this time. After being unwell last week I am playing catch-up again. My creative mojo has deserted me for the time being and I am afraid this is the best I have to offer at the moment. 

My texture comes from embossing. I used two different Cuttlebug embossing folders for my background. I love anything oriental so these were perfect to show off the beautiful Cypress Tree. The tree is a Dreamweaver stencil. I dry embossed it the added colour through the stencil with pigment inks and a stencil brush. 

I finished off with some rafia for additional texture and a Chinese coin. The Stamp Man sell a great value Oriental embellishment pack. That's where I found my coin. 
Why not show us how you achieved texture on your project and join us on this challenge. There is a £10 gift voucher up for grabs to spend in the online shop. Join us to see other great makes from the Design Team and Challenge entries.
Have a good weekend!!
