CC3 Challenge 4 - Yummy Texture Paste!

Challenge 4 over at Linda Ledbetters CC3 challenge is using texture paste through a layering stencil. I spent a happy and messy evening having a play and decided I love the clocks version I am entering here. The texture paste was added to some of Tim's paper and I then coloured it all with various Distress Paints. Once dry I added a little antiquing cream with my fingers. I just love the effect!

This challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique, a fantastic online shop that caters to fans of Tim Holtz and his gorgeously grungy style.

I would also like to submit to Its all about Vintage - Use Dies (my cogs are die cuts) and Simon Says Stamp - Stencil it.

Thanks for looking


  1. Great use of the clock stencil Nikki and I love the effect the antiquing cream gives. Anne x
