Transferring Texture Today

I can't remember exactly what this technique is called -- okay -- I went and looked it up. It's a super easy one that adds a nice dimension to a stamped image. The technique is called Texture Transfer. All you do is stamp the image onto some textured card stock. Carefully lift the stamp off the card stock so it can be stamped again without re-inking. Without re-inking the stamp, huff on it to moisten the ink. Then stamp the image onto smooth card stock.

The texture pattern picked up from the textured card stock is transferred with the image stamped onto the smooth card stock. This fast and easy technique creates a subtle texture effect perfect for vintage, nature, and masculine themes. It's really nice.

Can you see that Texture? What a simple technique!
