Tutorial Time Challenge 93

This week's challenge was to make a texturized background using gesso, paint, or drywall compound. I used spackling paste for my texture. I spread a thin amount on cardstock, while it was slightly damp I ran into thru my embosser using Mbossabilities folder Venetian. I then sprayed the background using Glimmer mist in Gold, Meadow Green, and Iridescent Gold. I set it aside to dry.
        Using the Buddha Stamp set from Mark's Finest papers, I stamped Buddha in versamark and heat embossed in gold. Buddha was diecut with Spellbinders Label 18.
    I layered the card and popdotted my Buddha,
         Come and play here for a chance to win a free stamp set.
