It's All About Texture!

Here's my card for the Creative Belli Challenge today!! Stop by the Chrissy's Creative Belli Blog to see all the deets and the fab examples by the DT! I chose this image by Northwoods Rubber Stamps, colored it in with markers and aqua pen, and then added Flower Soft to the small flowers in the background. I mounted it onto this netted paper sheet thing...not sure what category it falls into, it's not DP! Anyhow, this card has major texture!! Give it try!! Create your card with texture then link using the Mr. Linky widget on the Creative Belli Blog to share with the rest of the DT!! Have a great day!!

Oh WOW, that image is GORGEOUS!!!! I love how you colored it! You really popped those colors and it looks so natural.

Does a texture folder work for the texture challenge?

This could not possibly have been colored any more beautifully. At first I thought you cheated and used a photograph, this is so good. I need to come down to Texas so you can teach me some of your techniques! LOVE, love, love this card, Anne.
