ADFD Texture Challlenge



I finally got a chance to play again with A Day For Daisies. The current challenge is Gimme Some Texture. I've used the adorable image Pumpkins and Butterflies. My original plan was to use a Cuttlebug folder for texture, but I'd already colored my image and made it fairly large so the folder I had chosen was too small. What to do? At Gingersnap Creations, the Spicy Supply Challenge is crimpers. Oh yeah, I have one of those...somewhere. Found it crammed in a bottom drawer and ran my kraft mat through. LOVE how it looks on kraft. (as a matter of fact, I love this particular kraft which is quite a rich color (for kraft, anyway) and comes in 12x12 sheets in a value pack from J's. I'm thinkin' it's from The Paper Company. The card base is soft suede from Stampin' Up. The combo...YUMMY! Of course my image is colored with Copics and I spent a really long time trying to get a truly saturated color on that pumpkin so I could enter the Copic Creations challenge.

I cut both the image and frame with my Nesties Octagons and popped the mat for dimension. For further texture I added some felt daisies I'd picked up for a buck at J's. I did a bit of coloring on them with my Copics as well, to make them look more Fall like. Then just a gingham ribbon to enter in The Ribbon Carousel Anything Goes Challenge and some adhesive beads and I was done. You've got a bit more time to enter these challenges so why not pop by ADFD, Gingersnap Creations, The Ribbon Carousel and Copic Creations and get inspired by the wonderful work of their fabulous DT's.

  10. Ahhh, so so cute. I love the design that just pops off the page, and the ribbon and daisies are perfect. I have a crimper, must dig it out. Long ago LONG ago I couldn't live without using my crimper...everything was run through one but now it's my dahlin' Cuttlebug and embossing folders that do the trick.
    Hugs
