A SPOON FULL OF SUGAR CHALLENGE NO. 50


And my next card is for A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge No. 50 - "Touchy Feely" - use texture on your cards. I have dusted off a Whiff of Joy stamp called Oakley in Bathtub, which has been lying in the bottom of my drawer since I bought it last year! He has been coloured with a combination of Sukura Gel Pens and Art-Kure WC Brushes. I also added Glossy Accents to all the water, and bubbles, for the required texture. I cut the image to size, and layered it on blue and brown card, which have also all had the corners rounded with a corner punch. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey paper pad called Granola. I cut a piece of card with a round nesty, and also ran it through a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, to another bit of texture. And to finish the card off, a stamped sentiment, some paper flowers, gem brads, and a few pale blue gems, all from my craft stash. Many thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a lovely day!
