Belli Challenge - Add texture

This week's Creative Belli Challenge is to add texture. What kind of texture? Anything that you can "feel" on your card - Magic Mesh, flocking, Flower Soft, velvet, or even hammered metal.

For my card, I decided to use Flower Soft. Once again I inked up my Vintage Picnic set from Papertrey Ink, this time using the tulip topper. I colored the image using Copic markers and then added Sweet Pea Flower Soft to the tulip blooms.

I used my friend Silke's sketch from Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 21 for my layout. The patterned paper is from a K & Company K-ology Hannah paper pad that I won a while back from my friend Pat Adam. I thought it matched my Sweet Pea Flower Soft perfectly. The card base is Papertrey Ink Kraft, the ribbon for the bow is from Offray and the ric rac is from My Mind's Eye. The gold beads on the card and the basket are from Michael's.

Check out what the other Belli girls have created over on the Belli blog. I hope you will play along with us in our texture challenge! To play, add a link to your creation using Mr. Linky over on the Creative Belli Challenge blog at the bottom of today's post.

Hope your week is going well so far! Thanks for stopping by!
