Marbled Paste- Fun with the latest Technique Junkies newsletter

I was invited to be a guest designer for the latest Technique Junkies newsletter- a huge honor for me......One of the new techniques used stencils- which I have quite a few of,  and stencil paste.  I love the look of these cards, and plan to make some for my Christmas cards.  Here is a sample that made it into the newsletter:

The beautiful red paper is  shimmery and has a corduroy appearance with a touch of gold- wish you could see it IRL.......  The stencil is from TSC designs.  That sentiment is from Firecracker Designs by Pamela.

This second attempt at the technique was done again on a black background...( the first I trimmed around the edges).  I used a Faux Metal background substituting Gold Metallic acryllic paint. There is a shimmery black (Graphite) shimmer mist sprayed on here, but it does not show up in the photo.

Challenges for the cards:
Character Cafe-embossing
2 Sisters-Christmas
Crazy 4 Challenges- Christmas
Crafty Pad- Christmas Sparkle
I Did it Creations- Traditional Christmas Colors
Lexi's Creations-Traditional Christmas Colors
Anything Goes- Emboss it

Thanks for stopping by! Shelly
