Texture Rocks!!

Time again for me to share a little tutorial with you all for One Crazy Stamper, and today I have decided to show you how to add texture to any Copic colored image you do!
The first thing you need to know is that you must choose what area of the image you are going to texturize, as that will be the first thing you color and then use the technique on. For the following demos I have colored the tights on the Stamping Bella image The Right Shoes.

After coloring the tights, you need to find some of your wonderful stamps that feature texture, and a mini mister filled with Copic Colorless Blender solution. I have used a cross hatch stamp, a stamp with polka dots, and another with a square pattern.
With the Copic Colorless blender solution, spritz the texturized stamp a couple of times - don't soak the stamp as that will cause the solution to spread excessively when applied to the finished colored image. Stamp the pre-colored area with the wet texture stamp, and be prepared to be amazed while you watch the texture appear on your colored image.

Here's the polka dots....

...and the square patterned results...

Once you're pleased with the textures, finish coloring the image and produce your own wonderful cards! Here's my textured images completed....

Hope you take the time to experiment and try this easy to do technique!!
