I am a Guest over at Top Tip Tuesday

 
 
 

I was recently asked if I would do a Tutorial on a technique
that I had used at an ABC Christmas Challenge.

Of course I said yes especially as it fits perfectly with the
Current Challenge at Top Tip Tuesday to MAKE YOUR OWN.
***
So here goes for my first ever TUTORIAL.
 
To start your project gather your every day supplies you have at home -
Baby Powder, Craft Glue and Acrylic Paste.
The recipe I used can be found on the internet and  is
1/4 cup Baby Powder
1 tablespoon Glue
1 tablespoon Acrylic paint
 
 
 
Mix together in a small container till you get a smooth paste.
You may need to add a little water.
You could also use coloured Acrylic Paint which I added to the white.
Let your imagination take over.


You will need a stencil to place on your card stock then start
applying your paste. I used an old credit card filling in the open spaces.


 
When you are happy with the result carefully remove the stencil and give it a good wash.
It shouldn't take very long for your work  to dry.

 

Close ups of the Texture showing
the Wink of Stella shimmer.

 
 This also show the depth and roughness of the Texture
and the cream colour.

Here is the finished card.
 
 
Other products I used are -
Clear Scraps Diamond Stencil
TCW Mini Textile Stencil
Folkart Daffodil Paint added to Texture Paste
Spellbinders Poinsettia Die
Kraft & Cream card stock
Fancy That Leafy Swirl
JustRite Antique Labels
MS Leaf Punches
Kaisercraft Pearls
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs Snow One Like You.
Wink of Stella Pen for a little shimmer.

I had recently made another card using this technique
You can check it out HERE
This card has lots of colour, texture and some bling.
***
So I think I covered everything here and I hope
you are inspired to check out this challenge HERE
and what the Design Team made
 then show us your project using your
MAKE YOUR OWN

Thank you so much Samantha for the opportunity

Wow! That is one awesome card and a great tutorial. I don't have all the supplies so most likely won't try it for now at least. But it sure is a great look you achieved with it.
