MIM #133


Danielle Flanders makes her debut tutorial on PTI's MIM challenge
demonstrating how to create a flocked look with dimensional paste.
I used white gesso, and added canyon clay reinker to color my paste. (Dani said we could!)
Kraft cardstock, misted with pearl and mojito.

Mighty Oak die cut stencil
Mat Stack #6 in Ocean Tides and Dark Chocolate
Meadow Green leaves, stamped with Scarlett Jewel and Ripe Avocado, then clear embossed.
Rustic White cardbase 
Blessings sentiment from Basket of Blessings
Crackling that took place... happy accident!
Will definitely do this again! 
Thank you Dani!
