SGC - Texture

It's my first challenge with Southern Girls Challenge and I'm loving it!  The theme this week is Texture and I've added some different elements to my card to create some texture - first the base card has a rough feel, a bit like Bazzill to it.  Then I added some washi tape and yellow twine.  The image has been coloured with copics and then layered for a 3D effect.

The image I have used is from Dilly Beans Digital Stamps, there are some really cute stamps to choose from and I just know that I'm going to have to collect them all now!  I added some spots to her dress and then used Liquid Pearls for some texture too.

I'm really happy with how this card turned out - it's happy and fun and the digi stamp was really easy to work with and customise.  Here's a little close up of the image so you can see the layers.

You can see the head and hearts have been raised on 3D foam dots for dimension.  I used am xacto knife to cut out each element and then lightly sanded the edges for a neat look.

The borders have been doodled with a black pen and the eyes on the image have been glossed up.

I am including this card in the following challenges:
