Use images as text textures

Instead of coloring your text with a solid color, fill it with an image and give it an interesting texture. How? Choose an image as your text texture, dynamically add a text overlay as explained in the Dynamic text overlay blog post, and set the flags parameter to cutter (fl_cutter in URLs).
