Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Touchy Feely!!! SNEAK PEEK and BLOG HOP!!!!!



This weeks challenge is to get TOUCHY FEELY!!! LOL Ok, just kidding.....well, not really!!! Put some TEXTURE on your project!!! Here is my card for this weeks challenge:

I used the dinosaur from Incy Wincy Designs and a sentiment stamp I've had for a long time from Whipper Snapper (I think!) The background is a part of a larger background stamp from Magnolia, which I got from Simon Says Stamp! Inside it just says Happy Birthday!

The first texture is the cuttlebug background (Mesh) and sponged with ink, and then the buttons too are texture I guess eh??

This is what I'm most proud of!!!!



My texture on the dinosaur is Liquid Applique (grey), that I brayered on the dinosaur then heated with my heat gun, I wanted it smooth - not totally puffy like goopy LA does. BUT, I didn't want it all to be smooth so I added a bit more where he might be "scaley", and when it puffed up, I just flattened it a bit with my finger to give it a "warty" look - LOL - How is that for TECHNICAL lingo???

BLOG HOP ALERT!!!!!!
The second GREAT thing I have to tell you is that Incy Wincy Designs is getting ready to release 6 new images & let me tell you, they are FABULOUS!!! Here is a sneak peek of 1 of the images!
