Touchy Feely ...........




This card has been made as an entry into this fortnights recipe challenge for weeks 286 & 287 over on the Less is More Challenge blog whose theme is 'Use Something Tactile'

I decided to look at what I had in my stash and found a collection of pots of micro Deco Beads in various colours and I thought if I used these as an infill on a solid stamped image it would provide a touchy-feely texture to the finished image.






I took a 4 x 4 inch white card blank and stamped directly in Versafine black ink with a styalised flower stamp from Anitas that I have had for years.  It's a solid image of a flower with foliage which I thought was ideal.






I then used Glossy Accents as an adhesive and coloured the petals with magenta beads, the leaves with green beads and the flower centre with gold beads. I left a border showing in black to set off the infill with the beads.  Once dry these provided a raised textural finish to the flower.

The sentiment (PaperArtsy) was stamped in black Versafine ink to finish.

  1. How totally awesome and creative! The micro beads look fantastic against the black of the flower. It must have taken a while to finish, but so worth it as it looks amazing. Fab entry, thanks so much!

  6. A great choice for adding texture, Sid. And a great idea to use glossy accents for your adhesive, those beads are going nowhere now! Love the black outline you left too, it's really effective.
