...Crazy 4 Textures (C4C26)

Don't forget to check out the post HERE for a chance to win some BLOG CANDY!
Happy Saturday! It's time to get "crazy" again with the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog, and this month Robin Willis has been issuing some wonderful challenges to play along with. This week you're asked to create a card or project with three different textures. You can dry emboss, heat emboss, use textured papers...anything with TEXTURE. I chose to use the "Spring Thing" digital set from C.C. Designs...aren't these little sheep just adorable?!? I drew over the fence and sheep with a VersaMarker, then embossed all of them before I colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. I cut out the panel using a Nestabilities die and a Big Shot, then added the three sheep using Dimensionals. I also put some White Flock on each of the sheep using a Glue Pen, then paired the completed focal panel with a piece of patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday paper pad. I added more texture by dry embossing the Kraft card base with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, and by tying a piece of Rose Grosgrain Ribbon around the card front. So here are all of the textures I included in my sample: (1)dry embossed card base, (2)grosgrain ribbon, (3)wet embossed images, (4) flocked sheep. I think I accomplished the challenge! LOL!
Now let's see what the rest of the design team have created for you to peruse:
