Time With Deb

Hello everyone! It's Tuesday and time to spend time with one of our talented Design Team members once again. Today, we are chatting with the talented Deb. Here is what she has to share with you:

Texture and Dimension

Hello once again! I'd like to show you some examples of adding texture and dimension to your designs!

My card today features Our Daily Bread design's new May release, "For the Graduate." What a marvelous set! Besides this serene scene, there are two Bible verses and two sentiments making up "For the Graduate."

I stamped the scene with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, my "go-to ink" to use when I Copic marker color. I used multiple Copic Sketch markers here, as well as some Prismacolor pencils, to color and shade the image panel.

After coloring, I die cut the image using two sizes of a Spellbinder's die. I taped the widest die cut flat to my design, then popped up the image panel die cut with double pieces of dimensional tape. In doing so, dimension and lift was added to my design along with the scene continuing onto the self frame.

The center panel running behind my image panel was paper crimped for texture. Using a crimper or Cuttle Bug folders are a quick and easy way to add interest to your design.
Another method of adding texture is to use textured paper. Our Daily Bread sells Prism textured cardstocks...perfect for adding interest to your design.

The Proverbs 3:6 Bible verse from "For the Graduate," along with gingham ribbon bow and tab, tie this design together!

Thanks so much for joining me today!
