Touchy Feely - SSS DT Card

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I've had such a busy week at work this week there has been no time for crafting or even relaxing to be honest, but only two more shifts and then I have a whole lovely ten days off & I cannot wait :)

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Touchy Feely
so simply add some texture to your creations :)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring 
My Favorite Things
  goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.

On today's card I have featured MFT's Jumbo Beautiful Bow Die & In The Woods Stencil, and for my texture I have used embossing paste, lace & some fibers added around my pretty Prima flower.
When I stencil on my cards I usually use Dreamweaver embossing paste and once that is dry re position the stencil and go over the paste with white Gesso as it makes my stencil work more prominent.

The copic colours I've used are - 
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E47, E44, E42, hat - C3, C1, C00 / R01, R12, R000, top R14, R12, R01, skirt & skates - C3, C1, C00, sledge - W6, W4, W2, W0, snow C1, C00, B0000.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
