Simon Says Stamp & Show Some Texture!

Happy Monday Everyone!

First off - a few exciting announcements:

And now...for our feature presentation!  Simon Says Stamp & Show Some Texture!!  I LOVE this theme because I am a huge fan of texture on cards and artwork in general - so simple, but adds so much eye-catching interest!  Here are what 3 (of many) Simon Says Stamp & Show Design Team members have made!  Make sure to check out the Stamp & Show Blog and the DT's blogs for more information!!
Made by Lynne Forsythe!
Sarah used the Think and Wonder stamp set by Artistic Outpost, Gesso by Claudine Hellmuth, Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pad by Tim Holtz, Kraft Resist Paper by Tim Holtz, and Old French Writing by Hero Arts!  One of my favorite ways to add texture is with corrugated items! Sarah did just that on her piece!

Made by Tracy Evans!
Tracy used a Mega Bottle Cap, edged in gold (try a paint dabber!), the Dream a Little stamp (you can also do this with a Stamp2Cut No. 2 Cartridge), the Dream die by Tim Holtz for Sizzix, and a nice wing like from Regal Adornments by Idea-ology!
