Tutorial – making some beautiful canvas textured cards for print or web

Today I’ve been playing around with textures to make some fun (and pretty!) cards, maybe for valentines day, mothers day or just for hanging on your wall.To start off with you need some of your own original and delicious images and then some textures or images of for example paper, flowers, sand…whatever you fancy! I got mine from Texturez, a great free resource with loads of textures of different kinds (Just make sure you are allowed to use them first, when fetching things online, to keep all creative minds happy 🙂 .  Then just paste the textures in over your image in photoshop or whatever program you use, and play with saturation and opacity. I put mine to overlay using layer styles in photoshop, so that you can see the pretty images from behind the texture. This is how it ended up.
