Mixed Media Fun!

  Do you love cards with texture?  Are you tired of using embossing folders as the only way to show texture?  If you answered yes- then I have the answer for YOU!  Two words.  Modeling paste.  I LOVE this stuff!  Not only is it easy to tint with a reinker but it adds the perfect amount of texture to your cards and scrapbook pages.  
The card below was created using modeling paste that was tinted with a Pool Party reinker.  If you decided to try this yourself- I suggest starting out with only a few drops of reinker at first.  Then after it's all mixed in you can decide if you want more color.  

The texture isn't the only thing I love about this card.  The color scheme is just gorgeous!  I wasn't sure about putting Blushing Bride with Calypso Coral, Pool Party, So Saffron and Crumb Cake but it really works well!  As for the button- it's actually one of the large buttons from the Sweet Dreams Designer Buttons.  I just used the plain white backside instead of the patterned front.  
Thanks for stopping by!
