JAI 240 Just add texture

Hello there,
we have a challenge that has so many fun possibilities for you this week on Just Add Ink. This week we want you to Just add texture. Since I am in Christmas mode here, I played with a few ways of adding texture into a Christmas card. Here it is.

This card is all about the layers - first the brayered blue night sky (just remember to mask off the moon first - grrr), then stamp the trees. Next using the SU Star stencil and texture paste add a scattering of dimensional stars to the sky. The snow bank, edged with silver glitter, was added in on dimensionals, and topped with one last layer -  the horse and sleigh. So as you can see my use of texture is subtle but adds I think a lot of depth and detail to the end result.

Do check out the rest of the DT who have lots of wonderful texture laden examples for you!

Thanks for visiting,

  1. This is definitely a 'wow' Christmas card. Lots of lovely layers and I'm just a little jealous that you didn't have quite the same trouble as me with your texture paste - those stars look lovely. xox


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
