Welcome  to  the  Texture  Blog  Hop.

Technique Tuesday Blog

We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world that Love to Share What We do in hopes of Inspiring you to create on your own.  Every Month we have a Technique theme.  This month it is Texture.  I actually made this card and showcased it on the Catalog Launch Party on May 4th.  I used the amazing Nature's Prints from the Sun Prints Suite and did Embossing Resist.  I was please with the way it turned out.

Here is my card and I will be sure to include the supplies below.
