The Creative Expressions DT were given texture paste as part of our package this month....right up my street!
I have the silver paste....and boy is it silver!!!!
I have kept my project very simple, in order to showcase the texture paste to its full advantage. A heart shaped hanging, full of shine and texture!
Now, not everyone has chipboard hearts lying ready to be used, so I thought I would share a little tutorial on how to create your own hearts, perfectly shaped every time!
I saw this on a cake making web site..and thought it would perfectly well for card too!
Firstly, cut a circle from chipboard. Either die cut one, or draw around something suitable. The bigger the circle, the bigger the heart! Cut the circle in half...
To finish off my heart, I gave it a wash of white paint, followed by a light covering of blue. I then scraped the texture paste onto the heart. It isn't a must to use a stencil for this, I have used plain old sequin waste (punchinella) on my heart...
I added a large eyelet to the heart so I could thread some seam binding through...
Chit Chat sticker finishes off my hanging.
If you like texture paste, then I would really recommend this......I have tried before to get a silver colour by adding silver paint to regular paste, but haven't managed to get this level of shine!
