Totally Gorjuss Challenge 199 - Texture

Well it's that time of the week again - it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss.  The theme for this week (199) is 'Texture' and we have 2 sponsors this week - Quixotic Paperie and Bugaboo Stamps. So if you want to be in with a chance to win a lovely prize, pop over to the Totally Gorjuss blog here and enter your card or project with a 'textured' element.  While you're there check out what the fab DT girls have made to inspire you.

Here is the card I have made for the challenge. I stamped and watercoloured my cute cat 'Mimi' using Distressing Pens, and I added my own handmade flowers, pearls and some ribbon.  I used lots of different elements to give lots of texture, plus I embossed the 2 little hearts at the bottom of my card.

Here's what I used:
Stamp: Mimi - 'Lazy Days' by Helz Cuppleditch
Distressing Pens: Chair - Scattered Straw, Tea Dye / Cat - Antique Lien, Bushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Victorian Velvet / Cushion & Flowers Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Aged Mahogany  / Blanket - Worn lipstick, Spun Sugar
Distressing Ink: Worn Lipstick
Papers: Molly Bloom (from a magazine, paper and stamp kit)
Dies: Sizzix 'Hearts', Spellbinder 'Floral Ovals', Various flower and leaf dies
Other: Handmade flowers, Pearls, Gems, Ribbon, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Watercolour Cardstock, My Minds Eye Flower Stamp, Kanban Shaped Base Card

Thanks for visiting - don't forget to visit our blog at Totally Gorjuss and have a look around, and remember to enter your card/project in this week's challenge. I'm look forward to seeing what you make.
