This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Fave item to create 3D texture (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

My favourite 3D items are pearls, ribbons and flowers 
I couldn't decide between them so added all three! 
I also like layering my panels on foam pads to create more 3D texture

My favourite 3D item and how to create texture
If you know me well you will know I LOVE sewing on cards so that is my most favourite way to create texture I also love crumpling die cuts the dotty border is a die cut stained and crumpled then sewn into place, and to add a little more texture a wooden flower coloured and glossy accents and a pearl added.


I just love using embossing folders and this fence pattern looking like is one of my favourite, because it looks so fancy and elegant doesn't it?  I also love to use butterflies on my cards to get some extra texture.

Usually my favourite technique for adding texture, without bulk, is embossing folders. However, on this occasion  I found a pad of pre-embossed core'dinations which I sanded back to reveal the raised pattern. The seam binding ribbon adds some softness too.

Since I found the wonderful snow tex paint and frantage embossing powders I am hooked on them.  I love vintage/shabby chic cards these are a perfect combination. 
Lace and flowers add the finishing touch to this card.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Fave item to create 3D texture (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
