Textured thanks

Hi all! Less is more theme this week is to add some texture. Here is what I did with it.

Used some home made texture paste (baby powder, glue, white paint and water) to add the small distressed squares in the background.

Daisy die is from Simon Says Stamp. I cut several out, layered them and then colored the top one with my Zig water color markers with a paint brush and water.

Thanks die is from Savvy stamps and cut out in black and stuck on using some wacky tack, which is a dry adhesive.

Kept it clean and simple with lots of white. I really liked how this turned out.

Thanks for popping by.
