More fun with Texture Paste

Hello Peeps,

Recently I discovered texture paste and started experimenting with it, using stencils, inks,  markers and even glitter.

I made this little bird in two stages, using the negative of Stampin' Up's "Bird on a Branch" punch as a stencil. First I laid the body, let it dry, and then laid the wing on top. I coloured it with Copic markers and ink. I used Washi tape for my trim and stamped my sentiment right onto the card. How's that for CAS? And it won't cost me a penny extra to mail.

Guess where I got that beautiful gold foil? Give up? I salvaged it from the inside of a Christmas card we received this year. I die cut a Spellbinders fancy oval from it, ran it through my Big Shot with a brick wall embossing folder and then applied burgundy ink randomly over the raised surface.

The inside was easy. I printed the sentiment on white cardstock, punched a border on the left side and trimmed it with matching Washi tape. This is not a new sentiment, but I will put it here in case you are new to the site and have not gotten it yet.

I love that you have stopped by and I especially appreciate the lovely comments you leave.

Blessing hugs,
