Linda here to share how to use Texture Paste & Stamping on a Card. Texture paste isn't new to the mixed media world. Most artists have a jar of texture paste in their art bin. If not it is easy to come by. I've recently found texture paste at the hardware store.
Fast'N Final Lightweight Spackling is under ten dollars and seems to work great in my mixed media projects. Check out other things in the hardware store the next time you visit, who knows you may find something that you can use in your next project.
Tim Holtz Stencil was paired with the texture paste to create the background. Doesn't the diamond background give this card a very masculine look?
The image used for this card is from Calico Collage a Digital download. I thought that it was a fitting image to be a Hero on the front of the card.
A Flourish design from the Cricut cartridge Gypsy Wanderings was used to accent the photo. This was cut at 3 inches twice on brown card stock.
The Beautiful Stamp set was used in this project. The hearts from the set were stamped on the background in Detail ink - Raven. It may be hard to see the hearts but when viewing the card in person these do show up.
My Hero was embossed in Metallic Embossing Powder - Penny with the Embossing ink. The copper shines nicely, giving a beautiful vintage look to this card. The little leaf was also stamped in the same manner.
Copper - Liquid Elements as well as Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists - Cork, Tattered Leather and It's Black, were used in the background.
Here is a video of the whole process to give you an idea of how the card was made using the Texture Paste & Stamping on a Card.
This was a fun card to make. I will be doing this one again.
