Texture paste on acetate with Glimmer Mist...

This was definitely a "I wonder what would happen if..." moment for me when the thought of applying texture paste on to acetate popped into my head. I really did not know if it would work to be honest.

 Luckily it did...

This was my kit. The lovely stencil by Prima is called "Flourish" and the Glimmer Mist colours I used are Sunkissed Peach and Sorbet.

I applied the Ranger Opaque Matte texture paste and sprayed the Glimmer Mist before the paste had dried. I suspect you are supposed to let the texture paste dry first. However, although it took a good couple of hours to dry with the Glimmer mist it turned out fine.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous Prima flourish stencil with the Glimmer Mist...

This is the finished card before it had dried completely. I added a small sentiment by Stampin Up so as not to obscure the background too much.

...and this is what looked like when it was completely dry.

It has made me re-think stencils. I don't actually have that many but can see I that I will want to experiment more with this technique so I will be searching for more lovely stencil designs. I really love the effect and I think applying texture paste is easier than stamping on to acetate.

Thank you for stopping by, I will be back soon x
