All about Texture!

For this week's Corrosive Challenge, we are looking for texture! Whatever makes you want to touch your artwork - that's a sure sign that you have some texture included!


I included a few items that add texture to this card. And they're my Big Ideas of the week:

1. Scissor distressing around the edges of cardstock add a touch of texture quickly and easily.
2. Adding a felt flower to your card will inspire that feeling of "hey let me touch that!"
3. A little twine, tied around the chipboard letter and the brad at the center of the flower, adds another element of texture.
4. The chipboard letter itself was inked by rubbing over an inkpad and then being dabbed with a sponge to create a look of texture in the ink.

Come play along with us this week and show us how you add texture! Just be sure to link your project up over at the Corrosive Challenge blog for a chance to be entered into this month's prize drawing. Have a wonderful Sunday!
