CMC: Let's Add Texture


Hello and happy Wednesday! No, I  have not fallen off the face of the earth! I know it has been awhile since I posted. This has been a crazy busy week at work… Long hours and very short nights!
Enough of that!   I am excited to share with you our current CMC Challenge.   We want to see "texture".   You can add texture to bricks, fur, clothing - The sky is the limit!  
I want to share the DT card I created using a sweet image from The Stamp Fairy digital called Jake Wintertime 1.  I created some  texture on my furry little guy.   I love coloring teddy bears and seeing if i can make the fur look realistic.
