Make It Monday #116: Adding Texture to Stamps

I had such fun with this week's challenge - especially as it gave me a chance to try out a new technique I saw online (more on that later).
I used the small and large circles from the PTI simply stationery set and tried a variety of the techniques with a comb that Betsy demonstrated (although I'm not sure how well you can see them in the picture). The sentiment is from PTI birthday style stamp set.
And the enamel dots? Well, they're actually split peas painted with various colors of nail polish. It might take a little longer than just buying a packet of enamel dots but it's very satisfying.
