One Last Card About Texture....All In The Ocean!

In the last few posts, I have talked about adding texture to your cards.  Today, I have an example of another way to add texture.
If you look closely, you will see that dots and circles are repeated four times on elements of the project.  First, the pattern paper from CTMH Magnifique, has repeating small circles.  Next, the image (a great digi mermaid from Michelle Perkett...more about that later) has round pearls on her body and handle of her purse.  If you look closely, the Sky blue band has been embossed with circles using a Cuttlebug folder.  And, last but not least, I added a pearl in Eva's hair and three at the bottom to finish off the card.  Repeating the elements in your projects will help with the continuity of the finished item.

Anyway, let me tell you a little about Eva the Glam Mermaid.  I recently found this wonderful digi stamp studio.  All the images are beautifully hand drawn by Michelle Perkett.  Eva is just one of the many Mermaids, Fairies, Angels and you have to check out Woofie!  Here is a link to her inspiration and design challenge studio.  This card is made for her challenge this week...All in the Ocean.  By the way, the image is colored with my Copics.

For Now, Happy Crafting!

Your card is so lovely!!
I'll definitely keep your tip of repetition in mind. I like to do that with colours, never really thought about shapes.
