BasicGrey Challenge 27 Add Texture

Morning everyone and I hope you're ready for another BasicGrey Challenge? This week week it's all about adding texture to your project so there are many possibilities. My lovely DT friends have come up with some great ideas for doing this and have created stunning cards for inspiration so I hope you'll be able to go and have a look and join in with the challenge.

I've embossed one of the layers of patterned paper with a cuttlebug embossing folder, added flowers and pearls, distressed the edges of the paper and used pretty ribbon for my textures. The image is marker coloured, cut out with nestabilities then sponged with dried marigold distress ink and attached with dimension tape. I've used BG Ambrosia paper for the background layer, sponged with vintage photo and I did a lot of distressing on the edges so that it's quite raised up. TFL and enjoy your Saturday. Chris
