Less is More: Two Week Recipe Challenge #286 & #287

The current challenge at Less is More is

Recipe: Use something Tactile

Tactile - connected with the sense of touch. I wasn't sure what to do that would meet the "tactile" challenge. I settled with this card - noting that the use of an embossing folder added a patterned dimension which could be felt by touch.

Here's my card

I started by masking a 3/4" border around the card front with post-it tape. I used an ink blending tool to add peacock feathers distress ink. To add a bit of sparkle, I added perfect pearls with a dry brush, before the ink dried completely. I then removed the post-it tape. I used a We R Memory Keepers geometric embossing folder.

The sentiment is cut with a Simon Says STAMP "thanks" die.
