Simon Says......Add Some Texture


Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is "Add Some Texture", and we're highlighting Tim Holtz products.  

My first card uses a pretty Floral stencil.  To get my texture, I first embossed the stencil before coloring it in the usual way using an oxide and a regular distress ink.  Then, while the stencil was still attached, I added some Moonstone glimmer paste to give it a subtle sparkle.

supplies: white, pink, black, and Green Leaf card stock, Tim Holtz Floral layering stencil, Worn LIpstick distress oxide ink and mowed lawn distress ink, finger daubers, Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste, Simon's Scripty Thanks die

Here's a closer look:

My second card uses my favorite Tim Holtz embossing folder, or, as he calls it, a texture fade.

supplies: white, Green Apple, Green Leaf, and 2 shades of pink card stock, Lawn Fawn striped paper, Tim Holtz Roses embossing folder, Simon's Single Roses dies, sentiment from (retired) Simon/Mama Elephant Summer Garden
