Texturize with Kelly!


On this week's WTW, my good pal Kelly Booth shared her technique for texturizing on her very first video here. Did you see it? Lots of technical help from her sweet hubby and very informative, too!


Here's my card using Oliver & Amelia's Happy Day from The Greeting Farm. I used a crocheted flower that I bought on Etsy, saturated it with Copic colorless blender and followed Kelly's tutorial.

Can you see his jeans? I love how it turned out like an "acid wash" and I dabbed a little on each of the dinosaurs, too. Fun! It also gives a lot of dimension on your images and it's fun to watch the "magic" appear.

Thanks for visiting today! Hope you try some texturizing and have a great weekend, too!

Stamp: The Greeting Farm
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, Tim Holtz embossing folder, ribbon, button, pop dots
