Texture Paste

A little time ago I dug out some texture paste to use for one of the challenges at CAS Mix Up and since then I have wondered why it remained in the drawer for so long untouched!
Here I used some Pearlescent White Embossing Paste by Sweet Poppy, through a Craft Workshop stencil. I sprinkled a few shades of Brushos onto the stencil before removing it.
The stencil itself looked pretty good so I took many prints from it, by activating it further with a few spritzes of water. Now I have lots of backgrounds in hand! 
I cut the aperture with an MFT Peekaboo square and added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted. Sadly I don't recall the make of the bird die which I double layered for added dimension.
It's for the challenge  at Just Us Girls - Texture Paste

Here is a card made from one of the prints from the stencil.

After lifting the stencil from the card, I spritzed it with water, which activated some more of the Brusho powder, then placed it onto another piece of card, using a piece of paper towel over it to add pressure. I was really pleased with the watery, ombre look. Some die cuts flowers from Alexandra Renke and a simple sentiment from Hero Arts completed the card.

  5. What a great idea to add Brushos on top of the texture paste, Chrissie. I love how it turned out, and the fact that you got other cards from the stencil is a big bonus. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

  6. Love both the positive and the negative versions = great use of the stencil! Nice to see the difference a black vs a white die cut make on the background. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Watercolour.

  7. Two very beautiful cards Chrissie. I LOVE that stencil and have used it alot myself. Makes amazing background. Love the wonderful texture from your pearlescent paste through the stencil with the little bits of sprinkled colour. And great to make use of the left over ink on your stencil to create this gorgeous stencil monoprint for your beautiful blue die-cut flower. Great designs. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
