A Texture Fest!


Hi everyone. I have been playing with a few new products and lots of textures.
Actually it is a mixture of new and old on this card. The poor dragonfly has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks and has been altered and altered, I am surprised he is still in one piece - I think all the layers of paint and crackle and embossing have made him stronger!


 My large flower has come off an old project ( I have been having a sort and throw away session!) but I added a little embossing powder and changed it's colour too.


The frame is new (love it) and the tarnished brass crackle paint that covers it.


I would like to enter the following challenges:

  4. Beautiful textured card Nikki,so much depth to it,wonderful creation.
    In answer to your question re the glossy accents just make sure it's completely dry before putting it in the freezer. Leave it in there for long enough to get cold,take out and then crack it. It doesn't flake off at all and adds a really lovely large cracked lines effect.

    Big hugs
