Do you love just White on White?
My favourite 'go to' for cards at the moment are
Stencils and have only delved into them big time of late.
I also discovered that you can do some much with them
especially with Textured Paste just to name one.
Now I have never gone there before even though
I love playing with backgrounds.
Maybe I must have been under a mushroom.
Now that the Pandora Box has opened - goodness knows
where it will take me.
I recently bought this fabulous Tim Holtz Stencil
called Holiday Knit and thought I would try
my new found trend.
I made my own Texture Paste as I don't live near
a craft store. I just used Acrylic Paint
Glue and didn't have Baby Powder so
used Bicarb of Soda. I did read that this would
make the paste rough and it did that but I liked the result.
Not bad for my first attempt
I showed my Sister in Law and she was into
Folk Art so she gave me her supply of
Acrylic Paints so I am going to have so much fun with them.
Sorry - a bit long winded there.
Onto the reason I am posting here.
I found a great challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge
and it is W for all WHITE - Perfect I said.
All I had to do was pop my Embossed Stencil
and add a Sentiment from SU Heard from the Heart.
I had this lovely paper that has a gold sparkle
going through it which was just what I needed
to go with the Gold embossed sentiment.
I curled the edges and lifted part
of the sentiment.
I also found another challenge that suited my card
where you were asked to use a Stencil and Stamp
(Just got those 2 in). Mine is just a
simple mixed media card.
So that's it for this post.
Thank You for stopping by
