Textured to Perfection..~ Moxie Fab World challenge


Today when I was out, I came across a packet of circle adhesive Cork protectors for $1 ~ looking at them I immediately thought of Hero Arts sketch challenge
 
Here's what I did:
Textured to Perfection....

I left the cork circles on their back sheet and inked up Three Ferns stamp with Weathered Wood distress ink and spritzed it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz before stamping it onto the cork.   I added a few bits of the stamp on the edge circles.  I then took some paper form DCWV Linen Closet Matstack and cut it to size and adhered the cork onto it.  All that then matted onto the white textured card base.  Added some We Are Memory Keepers Seweasy Floss in dark cocoa and a little CB tag stamped in the distress ink.  I am also entering this into the Moxie Fab World ~ Textured to Perfection.   I think adding the cork circles is an innovative way to add texture.  This card is for my hubby's birthday on the 16th.   Now I wish I'd bought more of these circles at that price.  Maybe I'll have to head back to Ike's.  It is a clearance store... has masses of ribbons, material, craft stuff, hardware, costumes ~ just about anything where there is a end of line sale out...they buy it up and on-sell.  
Thanks for stopping by.  Having a nice easy day today after yesterday's big outing.... the back is a tad sore.  

Cheers
Dawn

Hello Dawn
What a fantastic idea, you have made a card that is very tactile, and it looks great with this sketch. I think I will have a try at the sketch as I have been inspired by what I have seen.
