October Challenge: Add Texture &/or Color Inspiration

Hi, all!  It's time for another new monthly challenge here at House of Cards!  We loved all the beautiful creations from last month and we cannot wait to see what you do with this month's challenge which is....

To create something with lots of texture
and/or using the color in this inspiration pallette~

We have some FABULOUS inspiration from a Guest Designer this month!

Help me welcome PLISSA ADD!
Please visit her blog to leave her some love!

Here is some inspiration from challenge owner Mynn~

To create a textured background panel like the one Mynn made, follow these steps:
1. Cut a piece of glitter paper the size you are wanting to use.
2. Ink the "flat" side of an embossing folder with Versamark ink. 
TIP: The "flat" side is the side with wells for the paper to go when embossed.
3. Dry emboss the glitter paper.
4. Add embossing powder to the glitter paper and emboss. (I used green.)
5. Lightly dab the double embossed paper with white ink.
6. Emboss the white ink with clear embossing powder.

You could easily use other colors of glitter paper, ink, and embossing powder.
The options are endless! :)

And check out the other DT members for more inspiration~

The DT cards will be showcased here throughout the month!

Thanks for popping over today, friends!  Come back on the 3rd for MORE inspiration from this very talented Design Team!  We hope you join in the fun, too--please check out our House Rules HERE before linking up!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!  Can't wait to see your creations!

Mynn, thanks so much for encouraging me to enter this challenge! I wasn't sure if these cards had enough "texture," but since it's your challenge, and you invited me to join, I feel like I must be safe to enter!
Thanks for the tutorial on inking up the flat side of an embossing folder and then using embossing powder on the card! I'll have to give that a try!
