Paste-fully Creative – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 18 of us highlighting our new Texture Paste.  The texture paste can be use in so many ways to add dimension to your projects, I am sure you and I are going to learn all sorts of fun thing with this hop.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from KIMBERLY BOWERS BLOG, you are on the right track!

I am loving this texture paste!! While I have seen lots of examples of using an overlay with more of a geometric take, I wanted to play around with other types of overlays.  I stumbled on the Lilac image from Flower Market Cartridge and was inspired.

I was pleased the way it turned out.  The first layer I used combined the texture paste with Gypsy re-inker as I realized I did not have Pansy.  The second layer the texture paste is combined with Thistle.  I then cut the leaves and stem out of Fern Cardstock. I used the Bunches of Love stamp set and then added the bow using the New England Ivy Burlap Ribbon.

Here you can see the layers better.  I topped the flowers off with the Bitty Sparkles.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto VALERIE KAPSHA’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting the Masking!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!

  5. Ooh that lilac is gorgeous! I like how you used the two layers of texture paste. Did you cut your stencils from card stock or the stencils in the kit?
