Crafts 4 Eternity - Texture

Hi friends! Hope you are having a GREAT weekend; I'm a little late to the Crafts 4 Eternity party but hey, better late than never right?

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity, we're playing with TEXTURE! Use anything you want to add texture - modeling paste, material, embossing - wet or dry - you name it; one lucky participant will win 4 free images from Sassy Studio Designs.

I went with tinted modeling paste using distress inks going for a rainbow color! I used Memory Box's textured drip rings stencil; I adhered the stencil to my paper and smoothed on the tinted modeling paste; I placed it aside to dry and worked on the individual letters. I used a white tag, scribbled on ink tense pencils in rainbow order and smoothed it all out with water.

I then cut the HELLO using MFT hello dies - 5 times from black card stock and 1 time from the tag I had previously colored. But the letters were super pastel, so I added MORE color from the Inktense pencils and  spread the color with a clear Wink of Stella pen. LOTS of shimmer and a much brighter rainbow, I coated each letter with a heavy layer of glossy accents.

Simple yet super fun and sparkly - perfect for a little pick me up!

Thanks for popping in; have a great week!

  1. Love your card on LIVE LOVE CARDS, great technique. Haven't tinted paste before. I assume you added liquid inks from a bottle to the paste. Looks great!
