Friends and Unicorns (Yampuff image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have been making a lot of my own backgrounds lately and here's another of my experiments. I have a few stencils and just received some textured paste (I think it might be called moulding paste actually). I absolutely love it! You can use a trowel to smooth it over the stencil onto your cardstock and leave it to dry for a while. Once it was dry I put the stencil back on and then used my distress inks to blend a couple of colours together. By putting the stencil back on it protects the white background from accidentally getting any ink on it. The gorgeous sentiment comes from Tiddly Inks and I think the unicorn is from Yampuff.
