First I colored up the newly released, Number One from the Art by Mi Ran collection at Whimsy Stamps. I used my copics and really had fun giving her jeans texture. I had posted these photos on Instagram and Facebook and then realized several people didn't know how to do this technique so I thought I'd just explain as it's a really fun and easy technique to use!
Once you have the area colored that you want to add texture, in this case the jeans, you'll need some colorless blender and some fabric, in this case a swatch of denim. (I would do this technique before you color around the area you're adding texture to so that it doesn't accidentally get onto other colored areas)
I didn't get photos of the next step but it's super easy. Just put a little of the colorless blender onto the fabric/denim and then set it onto your colored area. I push it down for a few seconds and then remove. Let it dry and voila', instant texture.
You can experiment with different fabrics to achieve different results. I have used an old towel for a "fuzzy" texture on an animal before. The possibilities are endless!!
Here's the end result of the jeans~
To finish my card I had fun with the Whimsy stamp set, Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats. To finish it off I used my favorite Whimsy sentiment set, Everyday Moments.
