Basic Grey Challenge 27 - Texture

I am so late posting this today. I was in work early and have just arrived home (3.30pm) -Yippee - my weekend begins here. When I've posted this my priority is food and putting my feet up for at least half an hour - then I will see if I can't do some hopping and commenting - had problems last night - I kept getting the message ERROR - blogger took too long. You can imagine my reaction - I'm screaming at my computer to Hurry up and get a move on before I get another error notice.

For this weeks challenge at Basic Grey we would like to see some texture on your creations, texture can be achieved is so many ways, but to name a few to give you some ideas, how about heat embossing, dry embossing, flock, felt, glitter, glossy accents, the list could go on, but don't forget though that you need to use at least one item form BasicGrey somewhere on your creation.

Simon says stamp has very generously sponsored this weeks challenge with this wonderful prize for one lucky winner :)


I used Phoebe papers this week and I have to say this did not turn out anything liked planned. I have some gorgeous check fabric in pink, lemon and green that I inteded to use - Could I find it - no!! On to plan B - felt - I started by making some felt flowers but they tended to be too 'heavy' so - in the bin they went. Plan C - back to the felt and use it as a matt. I then took some voile and made a flower base with it added three Petaloo flowers and used some glass chippings as centers . These are from a gorgeous Laura Ashley set Martine kindly sent as part of my Birthday goodies. I used the Sarah Kay image Spring Blossoms, coloured with pastels and mounted on to felt.


Materials
Basic Grey Phoebe papers : Image - Sarah Kay Spring Blossoms : Derwnet pastels : Flourish stamp - Magnolia : Flowers - Petaloo : rest from stash.

Such a gorgeous card Heather! Beautiful image and colouring and I love the textures with the voile and felt, I have to say I know how it is when you have an idea for something and then can't find what you wanted to use, so frustrating, but your card came out so beautifully even so. Hugs, Chris xxx
