Friday Focus: Texture Fades

Hello, It's Zoe here with Friday Focus at Frilly and Funkie. Friday Focus is when we highlight a particular product or range from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and for the following two weeks there will be an extra 15% discount off that particular product.

This week we're featuring Texture Fades embossing folders!


I'm a big fan of Texture Fades and have quite a collection. I love the new dies that come with Texture Fades folders so you can cut and emboss, like the butterfly duo on these cards.


I embossed distress watercolour card stock with the globes texture fades folder and sprayed with antique linen, broken china and walnut stain distress sprays. Once dry I cut numbers and stars from the side and bottom of the card with the Thinlits shape strips dies and mounted metallic card stock underneath.


I stamped a sentiment from the perspective stamp set by Tim Holtz onto sticky back canvas with jet black archival ink and coloured with distress markers. I mounted onto metallic cardstock and 3D foam and attached to the card.


I added a strip of vintage dictionary paper and lace from Tim Holtz Idea-ology range. Finally I added an adornment arrow to the body of the butterfly and stitched the edges with my sewing machine.


For this card I used the mesh texture fades folder and distress inks instead of the sprays to give a less intense colour.


I used another sentiment from the perspective stamp set onto sticky back canvas. I love stamping onto sticky back canvas  because it has a real vintage look.


Texture fades folders are a great way to make an interesting background or bring highlights to the dies with accompanying folders, such as the butterfly duo.


All the products I used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and don't forget that all texture fades embossing folders will have an extra 15% discount for the next two weeks.

Thanks for stopping by.
Zoe
