Hello Everyone,

Over at House of Cards we have the most amazing challenge for the month of October. The challenge is creating texture and/or follow the given color palette. Oh two-in-one challenges are always my favorite projects to work on.. Here is my card for tonight. Enjoy..

Finished Card

Pictorial How-To 
1. Modeling/Texturing paste, re-inkers, and cardstock
will get you started.
2. Add a couple of drops to a non pourous
surface. I like to keep the color close to the droplet
to make sure I am getting the correct color. 
3. Get your favorite stencil and lay it over your CS
and adhere it down to the table or portable surface.
4. Mix your paste with the re-inkers and start spreading
it around with a knife or, in my case, a popsicle sticks
all over your CS
5. When you have covered the CS with paste CAREFULLY
peel the stencil back and see your result.
6. When you are finished with your tools
clean them ASAP or they will gunk up.
The finished background full of texture and loaded with color.
Finally decided what sentiment stamp to  use. I swear sometimes
the longest time is picking out a sentiment.
The leaves on the dark background paper is
so striking
Added just a bit more detail to the card.

Entering the following challenge:
City Crafter Challenge: Week 283-Paste It!

Well that should do it for me.. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and hope to see you at The House of Cards.. Take care all and please leave a comment if you feel so inclined.

All the Best,
