June release challenge

June is such a beautiful month! At least in my neck of the woods it's full of green, and blooming outdoor colors and textures. In just a few short days we'll be unveiling a new round of stamps at Flourishes inspired by the outdoors. We're really excited to show them to you. So today, we're challenging you to be inspired by the TEXTURES of nature!


I didn't have a folder with wood grain so I used paper behind my stamped image that is wood grain and the ribbon and twine give me card a little texture.

 SUPPLIES USED:
HOW TO PLAY: Create something with an outdoorsy texture in mind - or use an element from nature as part of your design. It could be the texture in an embossing folder that has woodgrain, leaves or vines, it could be a leaf rubbing behind your image, something glossy like rain or shiny like a berry. The interpretation is up to you! If you play along with us, you could win Flourishes entire June Stamp Release! If you upload to SCS please use the keyword FLLCJUN13.
