Some Texture Required at The Stampman

Hello, lovely Crafters

Well, it's Friday again and time for another new challenge over at The Stampman Challenge Blog and this time our lovely team mate, Neil is asking you to create TEXTURE. It doesn't have to be complicated, just some simple embossing is great, but you can go completely mad if you want too.

For my DT project I used the lovely Tim Holtz stamp set, Papillion, my Mum bought me for Christmas. I've wanted this one for ages so am really happy to get a chance to play with it.

I clear embossed the large background stamp and then rubbed distress inks over the top. This has to my favourite technique at the moment. The butterflies had diamond stickles applied and I ran the swirl through a cuttlebug embossing folder before wiping Stormy Sky DI over it. I used the same ink to colour the white ribbon and made some paper beads.

The rest of the DT have come up with some gorgeous projects so it's well worth having a peek and Jill, Mrs Stampman is offering a £10 voucher for the winner to spend on their shiny new website.

It's perfect crafting weather so why not have a play and show us all your texture.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.

Stunning piece, Lisa. The colours are beautiful they make me feel warm, which is good because it is little above 1c today!!
Do you have to have particular products to play with this challenge? ( meaning some sites insist you use certain stamps of their own make)

Ooh Lisa, this is absolutely stunning. I love those colours and that stamp set is gorgeous I agree. Ashamed to say mine has not been inked up yet and I got it when it first came out. What a disgrace I am!
