Texture Pressing

Have you ever wanted a way to add texture to your project? Have you longed for a way to get a stamp image you love into a tangible texture? Well you can and I made a tutorial just for you!

Texture Pressing

There are so many fun ways to apply this technique. You can do the simple, just press it with ink and apply it to your project.

You can apply it with a huge background stamp to make a big, bold statement and focal point for your card.

I really wish I could hand you this card. This butterfly - which I have loved from the very first glimpse - is simply stunning with the rough texture of the spackle showing through the fine lines of the stamp. Wow! 

You can also use your stamps with other textural pastes and creams. I pressed this image in two ways - I inked it up and made several sets to slice up, and I left it nekkid and pressed it into Viva Gold Modeling Cream then sliced it up.

So there ya have it - a new way to play. Did you get some stamps from Santa? Did you get moolah? You need to play! Give this a whirl and let me know what you create by uploading it to the SCS in the Texture Pressing gallery! I know you're gonna make something stunning!

Have fun!
