Technique Tuesday – Adding Texture!!

It is Tuesday and so I’m sharing a fabulous technique with you!!! This week it is these adding texture to your card! I love having a card that has a little bit more than just pieces of cardstock flat against each other. I love adding Dimensionals for some depth and other embellishments to add texture and effect!

I have added texture to this card in 3 ways! Can you find them???

1. I have used Pink Pirouette Cardstock on top of my Whisper White card base and again to back my stamped Whisper White piece. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals between the 2 layers of Pink Pirouette to give a little texture and shadow!

2. I stamped the branch image from the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set with my Old Olive Marker and Pink Pirouette Maker. Then using the flower image from the Punch Pack, I punched out Pink Pirouette Flowers and added those to the branch for a bigger, bolder looking flower! It makes the branch a little more full as well! I added some little pearls to the center of each one too! Gotta have a little bling!

3. I brushed the edges of the punched flowers with Pink Pirouette ink using a Sponge Dauber. This makes the flower have a shaded look and adds a variation of color.

I hope you try out some of these fabulous ways to add texture and depth to your cards! Easy to do and really creates a WOW factor to your project!

Happy Stampin’
