Dilly Beans Friday Challenge - Texture

***For the Save the Earth FCCB Cricut Crawl, please click HERE.***

Hello to all my new and old followers alike!  So happy to have you on board! :)  It's time for another Friday Challenge over at Dilly Beans!  I am so super duper excited as Megan has kindly let me stay on as Guest Designer for the month of May!!!  I'm still hoping to be a part of her amazing team and am soooo honored that she is letting continue this month! :0)

Today's challenge is Texture.  For my project I created a card with lots of texture, featuring the Ragdoll Ruby Digi (#297).  I just love the way this turned out and I hope you do too!  Be sure to check out the store because Megan has added lots of new adorable digis recently!

Deets:  For this card I used black Recollections cardstock that I embossed with the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug Folder, using my Big Shot machine (for all textured items on this card).  I used some Ranger Ink Distressed Stain in White Picket Fence to give the black a more grungy feel.  Then I sanded over the dots with an emery board to make them really noticeable.  Next I took two three inch squares of patterned papers from the Basic Grey 6x6" Stack, Marjolaine.  I embossed the arglye one with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder and the Lime Green Patterned Paper was embossed using the Mesh Cuttlebug Folder.  I then added black ink across the swiss dots to make them pop up a bit and I added distress stain (same as above) to sink into the "impressed" pattern on the lime green paper.  Afterwards I ran my silver Creative Memories pen over the top to add even more  dimension and I sprinkled some lime green glitter over this piece before it completely dried.  I wish you could see it in person!  So much better than in the pics! ;) 

I used my Copics for Ragdoll Ruby in two shades of blue/green and lime/olive green, as well as a touch of gray for the bow. I then fussy cut her.  I love how she turned out!  I popped her off the page with 1/4" pop dots. 

I cut a small tag from a tag making punch I have (Marvy I think) and used a Paper Smooches stamp for the sentiment.  Then I inked around the edges with Black Cat's Eye ink.  To finish off the card, I added several layers of paper and fabric flowers with large silver brads as their centers.  Then I used that same silver Creative Memories pen to doodle around the whole card and voila!  There you have it! 

Thanks so much for joining me today and if you would like to take part in the challenge and see what the awesome DT has created please hop on over to Dilly Beans!  C'mon...You know you want to! ;)  *nudge, nudge*

Since you're here, leave a comment!  I love getting them! :)
