Texture, Texture, Texture at Woodware

Hello All
I'm helping out over on the Woodware blog again this week, and this time they are looking for Texture, Texture, Texture.
The card was made this Sunday (nothing like being last minute lol), where the weather in our neck of the woods felt more like Autumn than Summer, so perhaps that is where my inspiration came from.
 I used one of the fabulous Doobadoo stencils for the background, along with some dye based inks....
 clear embossing powder and gilding wax in gold and bronze.
The leaves have been created using the same coloured inks and two layers of UTEE. This was then  stamped into with the Stampendous leaf stamp while the UTEE was still hot and molten.
It doesn't affect the stamps but gives wonderful texture to the stamped image which I then carefully cut around.
The main card was made using a sheet of linen card. I rubbed the same inkpads around the edges of the card which helped pick up all the fabulous texture of the linen.
The bow has been created from some threads pulled from a Jute fabric square, layered over a couple of skeleton leaves and finished off with a wooden button.
Having sent the pictures to Dorothy I decided that perhaps the card looked better with a greeting.
What do you think?
Have a good day. Let's hope that by the time you read this the weather will have changed back to the glorious sunshine that we had on Saturday, even if it was a little bit too hot for me.
Never satisfied are we lol.
Bye for now.
