I love Tim Holtz’s new Texture Fades! I used  Tim Holtz Sizzix Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing folder 662716 for the central oval.   I first applied Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks by Ranger  to the  flat debossed side of the folder embossed a piece of white cardstock 2 times to get good coverage. This was a technique I saw at Jennifer McGuire’s Creative Uses of  Embossing Folders  she shows multiple techniques.  I then colored the leaves lightly with Tumbled Glass and the flower with Picked Raspbery.

For the oval frame,  by taping 2 dies together I cut black cardstock with Die-namics Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX by  MFT My Favorite Things.  The  light teal layer with  Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX by MFT and the black layer with Die-namics Inside & out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle by MFT.
