Three Ways to Add Texture to Your Cards - Create a Smile Stamps Challenge



Hi everyone! Today I am back with a new card and a video for the Create a Smile Stamps challenge! We really loved all the lovely entries for the past challenge, and can't wait to see what you create next!
And now let's reveal the theme for the next two weeks


For my card today I thought it would be fun to try and find different ways to add texture to my project.
The first way was to use the Skinny Chevron stencil with some Nuvo Glimmer Paste on my backround after having inked it with Distress Oxide in Blueprint Sketch.


The second way is by using the ink smooshing technique. I cut some watercolor cardstock with the Create a Smile Pierced Banners Cool Cut and used Distress Oxides in Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade to add color and texture. 
The third and final way is the most subtle of them all, and consists in adding dots over the shadow areas of my stamped images. For this project I used the Served Up stamp set by Create a Smile and I colored it with Copic markers. 


I also created a video tutorial for this card, you can watch it on my YouTube channel!
