City Crafter #283

Hello everyone!

It's Tuesday and that means  
a brand new challenge
 at the City Crafter Challenge blog.
My dear friend Ros is our host 
and she picked the theme "Paste it".
Create a card or project and use 
either Texture (Embossing)Paste, Crackle Paste
 or Crackle Paint somewhere on your project. 
There are lots of recipes online for homemade paste ...
 Here's one link 

I am an absolute beginner with mixed media.
I used a stencil and some embossing paste and
 paired it up with various dies. 
And added some blue and gold accents

That leaf die from the Songbird set.
That set is my best buy ever:)

Our Guest Designer for this week is KarrenJ
You can find more inspiration from her and 
 the other team members on our blog.
And I hope you will have time to join us! 
The winner will be offered a spot as our Guest Designer.

 Thanks for stopping by; have a great day!



Aquarel paper
Gold cardstock
Bazzil Cardshoppe Icy Mint
