Challenge 69 - *Sponsored by Letraset* - Dimension & Texture

This week we are super lucky to be sponsored by Letraset! and up for grabs for the winner this time is a set of Spring Promarkers!

The theme this time is Dimension & Texture - we want to see layers, texture, fabric, paint, glitter, ribbon, 3D projects, anything that shows off your use of dimension and texture!

Here is the inspiration from my lovely Design Team...

I used pretty papers from the Retro Home collection and the texture (although hard to tell) has been provided by layering and lots of stitching.

I used a Manilla tag with an embossing folder & rubbed some ink over the areas, a chipboard heart covered with crackle glaze & glitter, a pair of Swiss dot embossed wings. The little fella was coloured with Promarkers & both he & the words Fly & Escape came from Sarah's Steampunk CD.

I used papers and elements from Sarah's Retro Home CD to create my little notebook tag. I've added dimension with the rosettes and texture with the ripped paper, ribbons and twine.
I have used Steampunk papers and Greeting tag to alter a Kraft gift box, and added one of my Recycled Pepsi can flowers as my embellishment.


I've used papers and stamps (owl & cloud) from Sarah's Woodland Whimsey collection. I used some rafia and ribbon for texture and I also used Promarker pens to create fur. I used lots of layers and added foam squares to create dimension.

I used Sarah's Britannia collection to create texture and layers on this scrapbook page
I used the Country Garden Collection on the Britannia CD to create this card.
We are extending this challenge by a week to give us time to get the new Design Team members organised, so we look forward to seeing your projects - you have until midnight on 8th July to enter! - just click below to submit your link!
