Hi there everyone - this time on the IntAAS challenge we are looking for texture on your creations.  I decided to have a play with some Cosmic Shimmer Texture Pastes - 'cos I hadn't played with them before - typical moi!!!  Mind you, now that I've had my first go, I don't think it will be long before I have another play -they really are beautiful.  Because this was new to me I struggled a bit with how to embellish and finally decided to keep it totally simple with just a few gems and a die cut sentiment - tra laaaaa!!!!!


7" x 7" White square card - Anna Marie Designs (cut down to 7" x 6")
Memory Box Stencils - 'Shine' ref 88505
Poppy Stamps Dies - 'Fancy Happy Birthday' die
Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste - Frosty Heather and Chic Moss
Black card - stash
Gems - stash

Although I initially struggled ('cos I'm not used to these pastes) I ended up really enjoying myself and I'm also pleased with my end result!    Our theme runs for two weeks and we'd love to see any of your projects as long as they have texture - simple really!  Pop over to the IntAAS Challenge blog (here) and check out the creations of my teamies.

Anyway I'm orf now 'cos I'm just watching Blue Planet II - I lurve this type of programme sooo much!

Big hugs to you all and take care!!!

Love Suexxx
