AH 280 - Amazing Day with Texture Paste

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #280! 

I deiced to turn the sketch sideways and consequently turn around some of the elements with it. 

Close To My Heart has a brand new catalog out as of September 1st and one of the new products available is texture paste. This is new medium for me and this was my first attempt with it. I actually didn't use a stencil but a metal die instead. That gave a lot of depth as a result but that's not a bad thing - just different. When the paste had dried, I inked the entire paper with Glacier ink and then I used a small makeup brush to edge the leaves with Peacock ink. I spritzed it all with a bit of water and then did the same thing again. I love how it turned out. The hardest part was cutting the sheet as the paste dries so hard. I had to go to an old trimmer with a super thick blade and even then, it took multiple tries to cut through the paper. 

The patterned paper is from the new Boutique collection and the leaf dies are from various sources. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us your interpretation of the sketch shown above.

That background stenciled paper you created is beautiful, great job on your first attempt with this product. The black framing is gorgeous against your paper and Boutique's design paper and embellishing with the die-cuts...simply stunning card.
