JAI # 240 Just Add Texture

It’s time for the new Just Add Ink Challenge, which is Just Add Texture.  This is a Challenge that I came up with.  There are so many ways to add texture to our projects.  Whether it be embossing, ribbons or embellishments.

I looked up the meaning of Texture and this is what I found:


Noun – the feel, appearance or consistency of a surface

Synonyms: feel, touch

Verb – give (a surface) a rough or raised texture

I made a card, here it is:

I used embossing, ribbon and some Hessian (burlap) on my card for Texture.  Even the red glitter creates texture.  It was fun to make too.
So I hope you can join in the Just Add Ink Challenge too.  Visit us here to see the other projects made by the Design Team.
