Texture challenge

Can you feel it??

The challenge this week at Paper Crafting World is Texture!  Instead of using embossing, I wanted to do something different.  I decided to weave pretty paper together!

The strips are half-inch in diameter.  I taped the vertical strips onto my lap desk, and wove the horizontal ones while watching TV!  After I wove all the strips, I turned it over and covered the entire back with tape.  That way, I could cut it to the exact size I needed for my card without it coming unraveled.  I wanted to use a black silhouette against the pink;  the Eifel Tower cut file was so sophisticated, I knew it would be perfect!

I finished it off with two layers of ribbon from Michaels.  You can’t see it very well, but there’s a little bit of sparkle to the paper.  The paper is all scraps left over from other projects.

Head on over to Paper Crafting World to see how the other designers incorporated texture into their projects, and link up one of yours while you’re there!

    Enchante, Madame! (I save all the little strips left from trimming papers to weave for embellishments/backgrounds, too!)
