BasicGrey Challenge #27

It's Saturday and time for another Basic Grey Challenge! and for this weeks challenge we would like to see some texture on your creations, texture can be achieved is so many ways, but to name a few to give you some ideas, how about heat embossing, dry embossing, flock, felt, glitter, glossy accents, the list could go on

Well, I haven't posted for a little while, just sooo busy right now...
Here's my creation for the BG challenges and I have added LOTS of texture....
The back I have ripped all edges. The dry embossing on the green I have highlighted with a smidgen of acrylic paint and embellished with some gorgeous lace.
The flower layer is... felt, paper, chipboard, glittered brad (reminds me of jelly tot) I created it by covering BG brad with glossy accents and dunking into pot of glitter. Then left to dry! I have placed the flower onto chipboard decorative accent!
The bird has to be my favourite bit, I have die cut it with double sided adhesive sheet on top of the decorative paper and rubbed fun flock all over. It's better IRL, it feels so velvety and lovely!
Now the sentiment I've really banjaxed... I wanted it flocked and it messed up the words so I rubbed it off but some of the flocked stayed and so I then decided that it's actually a texture so I kept it. I've cut with my nestabilities. I could call it a happy accident and I bet no one would have noticed with all the other fancy stuff going on, LOL!!! Butterfly has been embellished with glitter on the wings

I had a fantastic day yesterday at Olympia and had the privilege to meet a few of my blogging team mates and yes I got to meet Clare Curd, and Sheila and Becky. They were all very busy and wonderful demonstrators. Felt very good to be part of the scene. Also met Dawn Bibby and Catherine from QVC. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope every mother has a wonderful relaxing special day with their loved ones tomorrow,
Happy Mother's Day ♥ HuGs Kim x

Gorgeous Kim - fabulous colours and I just love that cute bird.
Your felt flowers are beautiful - mine only served to give folks a laugh - hence they're in the bin.
Love the embossed birds behind the bird - great idea.
