Dilly Beans Texture Challenge

 This week at Dilly Beans we were asked to use texture.  I made a tag using the smallest of my Nesties Grand Labels Four and cutting it out of glitter CS from Me&My Big Ideas.  The smaller mat behind is the largest of the regular Labels Four, embossed with the Tim Holtz sheet music folder.  The adorable Dilly Beans image is Amalia Ballerina.  Isn't she just precious?

She's colored with Copics, and then I challenged myself to see how many more textures I could come up with.  First I wanted to flock her hair.  I'd printed her several times in case I wanted to decoupage parts of her, so I fussy cut only her hair and ran it right side up through my Xyron, poured on the flock and glued it to the image.  Then I added the flowers with another fussy cut layer (so you could see the leaves) and finally the hand cut rolled felt flowers.  I messed around with several ideas for her tutu, including trying loopy stitches with embroidery floss, but finally decided tulle was the ticket.  A gingham bow hides the gathering.  A fluffy feather was the final touch.  tickle, tickle!  :D
The dance stamp is from an ancient set called Rubber Stamp Poet by All Night Media.  I bought it as a gift for someone way before I ever started paper crafting and picked up one for myself as well.  ust have had a premonition.  LOL  I think dance is the only word I've ever used from it though.  It's cut and backed by Nesties as well.  Lots of dimension going on here and isn't it all sweet and girly?    And lots and lots of PINK so I'm adding it to the Divas By Design and Stampavie and More Challenges who both ask for Monochromatic and the Charisma Cardz Pink and Black challenge because although there's not a ton, her hair couldn't get any blacker than that. (do ya think?) 

There's tons more inspiration from my Dilly Beans sisters at the Challenge and Designers blog so we'd love to see you and what you come up with for our touchy feely challenge.  And for once, I'm not last minute on any of the other challenges I'm entering so be sure to stop over and see them too.

  15. Donna, this is indeed precious!!! I so appreciate all the great descriptions you have given us about the detail you added! That felt flower is absolutely gorgeous and genius too! I am sooooo happy to read your flocking tip. Never thought to use my Xyron for the adhesive! I wanted to use flocking on my project too, but didn't want to mess with glue so now I have a tip for the future! Thanks a bunch! I love everything about this card. All the textures you used are AMAZING!!! So happy to be designing with you again this month (hopefully longer). ;)
