DT: Incy wincy : adding texture

Hi everyone (well everyone who reads this!)

Another challenge at Incy Wincy starts today and the challenge is to add texture! The sponsor is Drawn with Character and I used this cute fox image for my card.  I started with adding some glass gel bead gel to the tail and chest area onto which I sprinkled some light brown brusho… I then added a wash of colour to the image with orange and Gamboge brusho.  Because the brush also had some shimmer paint on it, there was a glimmer to the wash.


Here it is before it dried! How cute is this already? So the next morning I went into the craft room to see how the gel had set…

Look at all the sparkle!

I needed to cut him out because there was a little smudge so I knew die cutting a shape wouldn’t work… now what to do with him?

I decided to carry on with the brushos and this time use a stencil that I had from Claritystamps of a lovely woodland scene… I sprinkled the brushos over the stencil onto a piece of cardstock and then sprayed them. I used Leaf Green, turquoise, cobalt blue and prussian blue attempting to get some variation in the sky colour. I ten brushed around the outside of the cardstock with some lucky clover ink and a stencil brush.
I mounted it onto some very dark green cardstock and onto a white card blank. The fox I added using some foam pads to lift him up and then added the tag and a little bow to finish it off.

I love how this finished up and whilst the bead gel might only be a little element of texture I love how it shines and looks so glossy.

I know exactly who this card is for and she is likely to see this post well before her birthday… so happy birthday about 2 months in advance to my friend who is obsessed with foxes. Happy birthday Julie! X

Now pop over to the blog to see what everyone else has been up to!

Happy crafting!
