HH challenge #64....texture!

Happy Sunday everyone! I am just as surprised as you are that I got a card done for today's High Hopes challenge...I was pretty sure I wasn't going to have time & in retrospect I should have skipped it! Oh my gosh, this card gave me fits like you wouldn't believe!! But I won....I finished it...& in time, too!!!

Today's High Hopes challenge hostess is guest Diva Melanie, & she is asking us to add texture to our card or project.




I used another fabulous Crissy Armstrong bunny on my card, Posing Bunny. I tried watercoloring twice....& both attempts ended up in the garbage. No matter how much I practice or how hard I try, I will never be good at it. So....Prismas it was!! I did stamp the image on Cryogen white shimmery paper, so the whole thing is sparkly pretty. I wasn't planning on cutting the image out, but after making yet another error, I had to!! The 2 embossed layers are cut with my Nesties Labels 4 dies. The papers are SU's Basic Gray, Sage Shadow & Cosmo Cricket Everafter. The flower in the corner is made with the same organdy ribbon the heart charm is hanging from....I've seen this on many blogs...you just thread some ribbon, gather it in a circle & secure it. I don't know how secure mine is....I was in a bit of a rush....so if anyone breathes on this card it may just come undone!!






And the final bit of texture....the Liquid Applique on the tail.






Close up of the ribbon flower. I'm sure if you look closely enough you can even see the thread strands behind it, lol!!

Be sure to check out the High Hopes blog for all the other great creations! Thanks for visiting, & enjoy your Sunday!!
