Add a Little Texture

 
     This week, for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the theme is Add a Little Texture. I did my best to add layers, and added some of the texture with Delta Texture Magic, a Crafter's Workshop mini bricks stencil,  and a pallet knife.  I tried to make it make it look more like stone by smoothing and then pulling up on the knife to make it pucker.  I hope it looks like a wall with flowers cascading over.

 
     The designer paper if from the Lauderdale collection by Basic Grey.  I took part of the piece and fussy cut flowers, which I popped up.  The empty areas were filled in with Prima flowers, and pearls.  Some of the flowers got a bit of extra texture with a pearl pen.  Even my card base has a raised dot texture. The sentiment is from the February KOM for Unity, which is stamped with Island Indigo ink, and I finished up with a lace bow. 

     Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you a fun weekend.
