Textile Challenge!

Firstly, I want to say thank you for all of the beautiful entries!! There were so many stunning submissions that it would take me a week to post all of them! It was so hard to narrow down just a few to feature here - but we want you to know that we poured over the entries and thought each one was beautiful!

Megan from Texas sent us this fabulous layout! Here is how she did it:

From Megan:
"The background paper is created from plain tan cardstock that I customized with the Botanika stamps and Distress Inkpads.

The title is stamped with a mix of TT fonts--Provence and Main Street. I hand cut the letters and coated them with Glossy Accents.

The quote is stamped with Underground Caps Small stamps.

The Textiles were personalized with stamps from Borderline: Live for Today.

I used a circle punch and created a reverse mask to stamp the dates in the textiles, then outlined the date with a black marker. I hand sewed french knots in the scallop edges of all the textiles, then added accents of a clear acrylic butterfly outlined with a paint pen and prima flowers layered with a stamped flower from the Kabloom! floral set with brads in the center.
The entire layout has stamped zigzags from the Hanging By a Thread set, then I punched holes along the stitch marks to give them more dimension.

I really enjoyed this challenge and I look forward to more of them in the future!"

Erin was inspired by the video tour of the CHA booth to create this adorable card:
"I used the little doggy from 'Dog and Pony Show' and stamped directly on the textile. I colored him in with Copic markers.
I have to admit that after watching your video from CHA, I decided to use the doggy because Eileen said he was her favorite and wished she had a dog that looked like that! :)

The inside of my card says, 'Thanks for being such a loyal friend.' Goes to show that the stamps don’t have to be used for animal themed projects."

And finally - I love the simplicity of Julies layout.

"Here is my page I did with the textiles.

I inked the edges of them lightly and stamped my journaling spot onto the bigger one and used the two smaller ones as part of the flowers."

Thank you again to each and every person who sent in a card, page or project! I loved getting all the fun email!!
Each of the participants featured in this post will receive the entire line of textiles and our new stamp set "You've Got Mail."

Even if you didn't get your entry in to me in time to be considered for the challenge - I hope you continue to create with the Textiles and I would love to see what you create with them. Please keep your creations coming to me! Email any time: challenges at Technique Tuesday .com

Congratulations to Megan. She is a friend of mine and has been teaching me how to use stamps for a long time. It is wonderful to see her get the recognition she deserves. I love her background paper she created. Makes me want those stamps.
