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.
