Just Add Ink #424...Texture!

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge is all about texture! Di has challenged us to add texture to our projects in any form.
As l had been playing with the "Magical Mermaids" & 'Sea of Textures" stamp set, l decided to combine the two with the shimmery embossing paste as sand.
This adds loads of sparkle and l think it works pretty well as my textural element.

To create my background l used a piece of shimmer cardstock and a combination of Pool Party & Mint Macaron swiped on my craft sheet and spritzed with water and my mermaid was coloured with a combination of SU blends and Bic markers. Her tail has a very liberal coating of Dazzling Details just to add a little more sparkle.

Loads of texture happening over on the challenge blog, so make sure you pop over and see the fabulous projects from the rest of the team.

Thanks for stopping by!
All supplies used are Stampin Up!
