It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about adding some texture to your project.
For my texture tag I actually kept the texture quite to a minimal, I wanted the texture of the stencil which I've embossed with to show through as much as possible. Embossing with stencils is something I've only done once before and I'm in love with the subtle look it gives. Tim explains in CC102 the order of how to emboss with stencils. I was stubborn, did detained the order, just switched the whole sandwich upside down, and then nothing happens. Quite strange... But from now on, I won't be so stubborn and will just follow the instructions... LOL!
To highlight the subtle embossing of the stencil, I've used different colors of Distress Ink. I've applied them with very light presssure, because the embossed parts needs to be darker dan de flat parts. I find that it works better if I apply multiple layers with Distress Ink.
Of course I also had to add some other texture to this tag, and so I used the Sunrise Sunset stencil with Texture Paste and Black Soot Distress Paint. This is my favorite way to add texture to my projects.
