Texture Tools are Terrific!

Tap your choice of the 4 Texture Tools* into your ink pad, then onto your project to create a variety of interesting textures from soft & even to sharp & angular. In this example, create a dotted pattern by 1) pressing the texture tool onto the paper then 2) twisting to create the textured dot shapes shown.

One of my favorite ways to use the foam texture tool to brush the edges of my paper to create a soft sponged look as shown on the center rectangle on the above Veranda card.

The handles help protect your hands from ink and the flat bottoms allow you to stand the tools between uses.
