Challenge four, hosted by Linda Ledbetter and the awesome Curiosity Crew, is all about using texture paste and layering masks, turn to page 49 of Mr Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities book 3 for his tuition. The Funkie Junkie Boutique are again sponsoring this round. I had great fun experimenting with this medium and now think I have a better understanding now of how to best use masks, both with the paste and also with ink. As fathers day is here, and I am never ahead of the card preparedness game ;) I created this with my dad in mind.

I used two "with love" die cuts. I had only intended to use one, the plan was to use a resist technique by embossing with clear powder. I wasn't happy with this look though so chopped another one up and used silicone glue on the individual letter and attached them. I do like the height it gives, best laid mistakes...
I then used gold acrylic paint on the frame and heat embossed, lovely bubbly, literally. I ripped up the frame to fit inside the lovely texture paste and added some embellies.
