Make It Crafty adding Texture

Hi there  here we go again with another challenge at, Make it Colourful!!

This is actually my debuting card since I've been back from my LONG absence.Slowly but surely I've been catching up with my DT's so be ready for me.LOL!:D

The challenge this week is to create texture to your colouring. I was anxious to use the
New Christmas line so I went with a fun playing in the snow scene. I tried texture in many ways possible.Did they work ((hands up ))IDK?? LOL! My first take was in the MIC tall pine tree. If you go HERE you could see how clean it is.I had to give it dimension by adding firs and texture to the snow.Whatcha think? I also TRIED giving my boys corduroy clothing but that didn't work out as plan so they ended up with plaid clothing LOL! Hey I tried right lol! Of course all the snow is textured with some added fine glitter. The background falling snow has texture as well.


Here is a close up of the trio




This is the best I could give you of a close up of the spruce and the falling snow.

I hope you could join the fun.Give it a try and you could get creative by using things you have like a sweater,sponge, gauze etc.... You could find more Inspiration from my teammies at the 
new MIC Gallery and be ready for a show. Thanks for visiting me as always.Comments are always so appreciated. Don't be shy :D
