Just Add Ink #240....Texture!

Happy Friday everyone!.....Before l get into this weeks Just Add Ink challenge, l wanted to share our Just Add Ink "Design Team" search info.....Until November 30th we are inviting papercrafters from Aus/NZ to apply for one of the 3 design team positions we have available.
If you're interested and would like to know more, you'll find all the details Here.

Now onto our current challenge!  This week Chantell wants us to "JUST ADD TEXTURE" ......
I chose to add texture by using some "Simply Pressed Clay" to create a sweet tag for a gift box gift.
I took a ball of clay about the size of a fifty cent piece and using my silicone mat, l rolled it out to about 3/16" using a piece of wax paper between the rolling pin and clay to stop it sticking.
Once it was the desired thickness, l used the largest image from the "Bright & Beautiful" stamp set pressing it firmly into the clay to create the texture.
I used a skewer to make a hole for the ribbon and left it to dry flat on my mat overnight. The next step was running it through my big shot with one of the "Heart Framelits" and it was done, ready to add some little clay embellishments.

Don't forget to pop over the challenge blog and check out the lovely array of textured sampls from the DT....

All supplies used are Stampin Up!
