Cherish Everyday

Hi everybody,

I realize 'adding texture' is one of my weaknesses.  And guess what September's Challenge on A Blog Name Hero is, your guess it, Texture!!

But I didn't want shy away from it so I gave it a go.   I must admit this is not my best work, but I've spent too much energy not to share it!!  LOL

I have here a collage of stamps, and combination of ink and gesso.  The texture is the fine meshes that I die cut using a flower shape cutting die.  Here's a close up.

Hero Arts stamps (Time, Stamp Your Own Plant, Love by Lea)
Hero Arts Fancy Die (Spring Branch)
Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink (Butter Bar)
Hero Arts Ombre Ink (Mint to Green)
Ranger Distress Ink (Ripe Persimmon, Vintage Photo)
Memento Dye Ink (Tuxedo Black)

Thanks for stopping by, I wish you a lovely day!!
