Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Texture

Woohooo!! Time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and this week our challenge is to add texture to your card - this could be corrugated card, felt, feathers - here are lots of ways to add texture! I have used some scrummy Magnolia papers for my card, inked with walnut stain distress ink.
I had to have a go at the no lines technique with a Tilda and I must say I really love this one - getting much better at it! I think Tilda is just perfect for this kind of colouring because she just looks sweet and delicate anyway so this style of colouring makes her even sweeter! I have coloured her with copics.
I added my texture in the form of some corrugated cardstock - actually a recycled coffee cup holder! which I have painted with pickett fence crackle paint. The flowers are from my stash and the leaves were cut with a doohickey die. I added a tulle bow and some lace too.
The gorgeous sentiment is by Stempelglede from the Just a Note set, stamped onto a doohickey tag die cut which I also painted with crackle paint.
I added a button from my stash and the twine is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x
