This weeks challenge at Cute Daisy May is to add some texture to your cards.
I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do but once I got started I had so many idea's of how to add texture, and I loved making this card.
Can you see how much fun I had with this one? You may not be able to see all the texture I have added here but if you click on the pic you should be able to see everything.
First of all I decided I would do some embossing and was going to use my cuttlebug embossing folders but I never actually got to that part yet because I spotted the embossing powder first :) I used a new Papermania stamp and stamped on some shimmery card then heat embossed in gold, then done the same on some mullberry paper. I have never embossed on Mullberry before and thought it might turn into a disaster but I had to try it lol. It worked just like normal paper but the embossing powder melted so much quicker.
I have no idea what the "stuff" that I put across the middle is called but I got it in a little cardmaking set and thought it would be good on this card, so it got stuck on too. Then for the fun bit, I coloured my CDM faisy with copics, used some Stickles on her wings and some green flocking powder on her dress. I love the way this stuff feels, couldn't stop touching it lol. I bet you didn't see that one coming did ya? Told you that you wouldn't see everything until you clicked on the pic ;)
And to finish it off some flowers. The green ones are punched with the SU! 5 petal punch and the others are faux suede flowers from The Flower Factory.
I think all in all a very touchy card. What do you think?
Now I have given you some ideas so go see the other DT girls cards, they have all done amazing cards again this week, and my blogging buddy and good friend Lorraine (Coldwaters) has also joined our team :D ( I think she is stalking me though now that she is on 2 teams with me lol), so be sure to leave her loads of love because her card is fabby.
I have to run and take the kids to school again. do you get the feeling that I am never on time for anything pmsl.
