Touches of Texture

The Touches of Texture set has several stamps that can give dimension to your cards and nature stamps that I absolutely love! I’ve added a little dazzling details on the flower, leaves and bee. For class we are going to try the Wink of Stella which I didn’t have at the time I made this sample. We are also going to do a masking technique for the background.
