Video: Coloring Texture Paste + GIVEAWAY
Welcome! A few days ago I posted a product release close-up video focusing on the newest products from Tim Holtz and Ranger. I promised to return with a video showing some of these products put to use… and here it is! Check out the fun you can have coloring Texture Paste…

I have always loved playing around with techniques. And there are a few that I have enjoyed tremendously along the way. But today’s technique? Well it is right at the top on my list of favorites. It is incredibly addictive!
The new Texture Paste from Ranger is perfect for adding color. Whereas dried Embossing Paste wants to (somewhat) resist Distress Ink applied on top of it (just takes it in lightly – which can be cool!) , dried Texture Paste takes the color like a champ. It is gorgeous! I have showed in the past how you can add color to wet paste (check it out HERE and HERE), but adding the color to the dry paste is easier. Texture Paste gives you the option of doing both. Woot!
By the way… all Ranger products (including Texture Paste, Perfect Pearls and Distress Inks) are 20% off right now at Simon Says Stamp. Use the code RANGERSALE now through 8/10/14.
I applied Texture Paste over the new Tim Holtz Festive stencil and let it dry. I then put the stencil back on top of the dried paste and added various colors of Distress Ink with my Mini Ink Blending Tool and Fantastix. The final touch of a light mix of Perfect Pearls and water creates a lovely shine. I can’t get enough of the results.
I heat embossed the new Tim Holtz “Merry Christmas” message (isn’t that writing unique?! so cool) with the always-so-perfectly-gorgeous Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. I also used the embossing powder to create a gold paper to put behind my pieces… allowing it to just peek out a bit…
Ahhhhh… I love when I find a new product like Texture Paste that opens the door to amazingly fun techniques. Thank you Ranger and Tim Holtz!
