Simon Says...................

I've never entered this challenge before, but I'd been watching a Christy Tomlinson tutorial where she'd used texture paste; which is something I love to use; so when I saw that the SimonSays challenge this week was to 'stamp and show texture' I was inspired to have a go.  I've added texture with the use of texture paste and also by using corrugated card.  I don't know how much stamping you have to do but I've just added a little using a 'zigzag stitch' stamp on all four edges and stamped over the flower and torn corrugated card at the bottom with a 'bubbles' stamp.  I didn't want the stamping to show too much so used a blue Distress Ink.  I've used Basic Grey paper on the background and daubed a little peach and blue paint in.
I've not been able to crop it properly as I was using MS Officed Starter 2010 to do that but it's stopped working.
(Canvas, but it's a flat one)

It's great Anne, love the muted colours. I bought some texture paste after using it in a workshop in January and I haven't opened it yet!

This is truly a lovely card. I am a big fan of corrugated cardboard and I'm going to check out Christy's tutorial.

BTW, I have you to thank for my day out and about. After checking the internet about Miros at WSU, I found a sculpture in a town not far from here and went to photograph it today. You were an inspiration and didn't even KNOW it.

Anne, welcome to Simon Says Stamp and Show! Thank you for entering out challenge! :) Your card is wonderful! I love the texture you've created with the corrugated paper and the molding paste! Christy Tomlinson is such a gifted artist! Your Basic Grey background paper really works well. I love the added touches of blue and peach paint, too! Your flower is really cute!
