City Crafter - Paste It

Our new challenge at City Crafter is to use texture paste, embossing paste , crackle paste or crackle paint.

For my DT card I made a background using distress inks and then used a stencil and embossing paste, The embossing paste picked up the background colours so I then waited for it all to dry off and went over it again with more embossing paste. I like the two tone effect that resulted. The little spots on the flowers are a pearlised spray - there are little pearly droplets on the background but they don't show up in the photo. The sentiment is a die-cut.

I hope you'll join us at City Crafter this week - we have a wonderful Guest Designer, Karren J , so I hope you will come and see what she, and the DT , have made and join in the challenge.

  10. Not only did your embossing paste technique result in different shades, but it also add some more dimension. Beautiful!

  12. Love all the texture you've achieved and the colours you've used are beautiful. Yes that can happen with EP and picking up the colours, but that can be a really good thing and in this case it most certainly is. Isn't that so great with crafting, experimenting, trying things out, happy accidents and also getting frustrated and having fun. Love your card and thank you for the inspiration x
