Belli Challenge #69 - Texture



This week's Belli Challenge is to use texture on your cards. What kind of texture? You can use anything that gives your card a "feel" - Magic Mesh, flocking, Flower Soft, hammered metal, or even velvet. Look at your stash and see what you can use.

For my card, I used Flower Soft. I only have one color of Flower Soft - Ivory. So how did I get it pink? That was one of my experiments. I love to play and see if something works or not. So I put some Flower Soft in a baggie, dribbled about 4 drops of a Shell Pink Alcohol Ink into the same baggie, and smooshed it around. The Flower Soft is now a wonderful variegated ivory and pink mix. I love it! It worked!!!

Check out what the other Belli Girls have created for you on the Belli Blog. I hope you join along and play in our Texture challenge this week. :-)
