Texture at Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, September already! Where is time going? Over at Chocolate Baroque, the DT are creating projects with a focus on texture so my teamies will have lots of idea for you over the next few weeks. I've used glitter to add texture to my project.

The focal image is from 'Essence of Nature' which I stamped with versamark onto a background I'd created with shades of pink twinkling H2Os. I embossed with black embossing powder and trimmed the image down before matting on black card. I created a band of by applying a strip of red line tape, removing the backing and sprinkling on lots of pink glitter. I created some more glittery texture by stamping the sentiment (from Birthday Words) with some adhesive embossing powder, heating and then applying the glitter.
I'll be finding pink glitter everywhere for weeks now lol.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Crafting by Designs: Anything goes
Crafty Friends: Lots of glitter
Fab'n'Funky: Anything goes
Sparkle'n'Sprinkle: Anything goes with glitter/flock/EP
Wonderful Wednesdays: Anything goes

Thanks for visiting today,
Claire xx
