OCC Background Check - Textured Backgrounds (Day 5)

My other textured backgrounds created with distress inks and embossing paste are dry so here they are:

I blended distress inks on a piece of card stock and then used a Heidi Swapp  circle stencil and covered it with embossing paste and left it to dry.

 For the second background I smooshed distress ink pads onto my craft sheet and then mixed each one with embossing paste.  I put down a strip of Squeezed Lemonade on the left side of the stencil. Then next to that I put down a strip of Mustard Seed mixed paste and then lastly Ripe Persimmon blended embossing paste. I then spread the paste from left to right covering the stencil.  I think it came out really cool!  This is a Memory Box stencil.

Thanks for coming by!


  1. Very pretty! Especially love the sun rays. What a great job you have done on each and everyone of your cards!

  2. I wouldn't have ever thought to use embossing paste with one of the memory box stencils. Great color combination. And the first one is also such a pretty combination of colors!

  3. Oh, WOW! That sunburst is amazing! Your work is beautiful.
