A Mixed Media Colour Challenge #3

I was inspired by the new A Mixed Media Color Challenge site's colour challenge # 3 for July.  It is so gorgeous and one of my favourite home decorating colour combinations.

Supplies: patterned paper (House of 3/Pink Paislee), cardstock (CTMH), distress ink and blk ink (Ranger), stamp (Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous), flower trim, (Webster's Pages), burlap trim (MME), wood veneer stars and stencil (Studio Calico), glitter letter stickers (Reflections), molding paste (Golden), mirror butterfly (Dollarama), bubble wrap (misc.)

 I love all the textures that I used on this card.  At the top half with the molding paste, gesso and wood veneer stars...

and then the burlap and fabric trim at the bottom.

Here is the splendid AMMCC #3 colour board:

I was playing with molding paste for the first time and trying to get the hang of it.  I knew I wanted to make a stamped frame out of the paste but before I took on the frame on my card, experimented with it using a stamped blob attempt on a mini card. 

Supplies: cardstock and sentiment stamp (CTMH), chandelier stamp (Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous), distress inks and blk ink (Ranger), molding paste (Golden) glimmer mist (Tattered Angels), border punch (Fiskar), floss (Anchor), cheese cloth (misc.)

Love this one too! How darn cute is that?!
I have to say it was worth the effort as I learned lots on how to get just the right texture thinkness and dry time before stamping the paste with my five attempts at that chandelier. LOL!  Luckily it is easy to remove or add to the paste with each boo-boo and easily enough to re-stamp with a clear acrylic stamp.;)

If you haven't checked out the new AMMCC site, be sure to check it out.  All the projects created are such eye candy and so inspirational!

Hey Cassandra, I love your mixed media card, so many wonderful textures you've created. I know this challenge has finished but I have only just got back from holidays and am trying to catch up with those lovely soles who left me comments from over a week ago, ( you being one of them ) I have never really stamped using texture paste but you have inspired me to give it a go. :)
