and the theme is 'Texture'. As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor as long as it meets the texture theme.
Here is a card using a wonderful older image I had bought from Lacy Sunshine (see Heather Valentine's Pirates of the High Seas). I need masculine cards so decided to try out this little buccaneer. My texture was obtained by using an embossing folder, some die cuts (big splash border die, whale die) and a piercing tool.
