Add Some Texture

There are so many ways we can add a little bit of extra interest and texture to our projects, from corrugated card, to embossing folders, pastes, gels, fabrics, the list is endless! We will be looking forward to seeing what you use to add more texture to your creation!

  1. I so love the DT creations with all of the lovely texture – I am going to try and work on some tags using lots of texture as I do love the look of those tags – I entered my CAS card that has paint texture on it – If you ran your fingers along the paint on this card you will feel the texture – TFS and for the challenge – have blessed week!

  2. Amazing projects from the DT. I was blown away by the different feelings each project evokes. Texture can be used to provide such a visceral impact for the viewer. I’m really looking forward to playing along this week. Thanks to you all for inspiration!!

  3. Thank you for another fun challenge.
    The DT ladies: WOW! You have knocked the socks off this challenge – every single one piece is a work of art!!!!

  4. Oh my, the entire DT did such a spectacular showcase of texture! Each design is incredible, filled with inspiration. Thank you for the wonderful challenge. :o)
