BasicGrey Challenge #26

It was lovely to see so many of your wonderful creations last week all with beautifully rounded corners (even though Mr Blogger wasn't playing ball most of the time and letting me put my two penneth in to say how well you had done !).

Well, this week we have another good one for you - texture. That's right, we want to see some texture in your creations for example, embossing, felt, material, distressing, flocking etc. etc.

The base card is white Bazzill.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Urban Prairie and I have doodled on this with a black pen.

The flowered paper has actually be embossed with the bloom dots embossing folder but you can't really see it in the photo.

The petrol blue coloured card is from the Papermania card stack.

The image is a gorgeous Anya which my buddy Tara sent to me and she has been coloured with ProMarkers (Anya - not Tara !!). Ivory and blush (skin), poppy and ruby (hat and top), cool aqua and cyan (hat, skirt and bow), mustard and sandstone (hair).

The circles were cut with my nesties, distressed and embossed.

The flowers have been punched with a retro flower punch and daisy punch and then a spacer from my stash added and a BasicGrey mini brad. The retro flowers were embossed with my swiss dots embossing folder.

The ribbons are from my stash.

I added a little button to her hat and also put some blue beads (which were also from Tara) around her neck with glossy accents.

I also decorated the inside very simply.

The label has been cut with my nesties and the sentiment is by simonsaysstamp from their card sentiments stamp set.

The little dog is from the Anya image and he has been coloured with ProMarkers, cinnamon and burnt umber and poppy.

I'm looking forward to visiting you and having a feel of all your textures - oooh errr missus !!! Hopefully Mr Blogger, pretty please, will let me leave some comments this time.

You must hop over to the BasicGrey Challenge Blog and have a look at my very talented fellow DT's creations - they are awesome (as always !).

Have a great weekend and see you back here tomorrow for Colour Create !
