Would You Ever Guess Wednesday - Textures Wet/Dry

Hello, and welcome to another

Today, the team was challenged with using Wet/Dry Textures
on our projects.  We could use Stickles, Liquid Pearls,
Liquid Applique, Viva Decor Pens, Glossy Accents,
Glimmer Mist.  Basically anything that would give our projects
some beautiful texture!!  I used several different products.
Here is a sneak peak!

For my card today, I used Art Philosophy and
Martha Stewart All Occasion Cake Art cartridges.
I also used Stickles, Liquid Pearls and
Glossy Accents to add texture.

My good friend is having knee replacement surgery next week,
andshe is realy nervous about it.  Since Saturday is
St. Patrick's Day,I decided to make her a good luck
card using my favorite color GREEN!!

I started by making some more of the beautiful flowers
from Art Philosophy.  I cut the flowers at 2.5" & 3" in
white and patterned paper.
For the big flower in the center, I cut it out in white and
then spritzed it with Glimmr Mist in Olive Twist.
For the flower in the left, I also cut it out in white, but
I just inked the edges with a Studio G stamp pad.
The flower on the right was cut from pattern paper.
I added stickles in the edges of the petals in
Lime Green and Diamond.
I put a dot of Liquid Pearls in the center.

Here are some more flowers using the same techniques.

The flowers were adhered to the card base that I cut from
Art Philosophy at 10"w x 7" h.  I added an oval in the middle
because I wanted it to be a window card.
The paper was from a Recollections Christmas Stack.
Once I cut it out, I realized that I was left with and
ugly white oval in the middle!!
So, I took some metallic rub ons I had sitting
in my chalk drawer and applied 3 different colors
with my finger.  I love the way it came out!!!
I then added a ring of Platinum Liquid Pearls on the inside
and the outside of the oval.

The Good Luck sentiment was cut from the 
Martha Stewart All Occasion Cake Art cartridge.
I cut the shadow as well.  I covered the top layer
with Liquid Glass from Close to My Heart
 to give it some shine and gloss!!

I finished it off with some crinkle ribbon. 
I sure hope my friend Pat likes her card.
A lot of love went into it!!!
