Monochrome Christmas Trees

Hi Crafty Friends,
I played around with coloring texture paste with Distress Oxide ink to make these two tree backgrounds for my tag cards. The stencil is from Uniko studios and it is perfect for Christmas!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you tried Texture Paste? Do you like it?

A: Me? Yes... but it's hard when you color it because you can't put it back in the jar so I had to make A LOT of tree backgrounds!

  1. I have texture past but haven't tried
    it yet. Your trees gave me inspiration
    to get it out and use it on some of
    my Christmas tags. Not sure how it
    does when used on a mailed card.
    Great trees. thanks for sharing

  2. I have tried it once or twice. I DO like the effect a lot. I just feel like i have to really hurry to clean the stencil before it dries and ruins the stencil!

  3. The first card is very attractive. The second card has that edgy artsy feel. I have not tried texture paste yet.

  4. Love the stenciled background designs and both of your tree designs! Pretty snowflake tree and the die cut one is very cool!
    I have tried a product similar to texture paste before. And I just bought two jars of texture jars at the Scrapbook Expo I attended last month.

  5. Great tree cards. I have texture paste but haven't used it much.

  6. Cool tree cut from patterned paper on your tag. Fun card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and ArtsyStamper.

  7. Bright, festive and beautiful. Loving the use of your Uniko stencil and thanks for joining the challenge this month.

    1. Love your "screen name" and I love this stencil! I have one more card coming that I made with it!

  8. Beautiful backgrounds and both cards are fabulous! Yes I have it but rarely remember to use it! LOL (obviously I have way too much STUFF) lol. Great job! Thanks so much for playing in our challenge at the Artsystamper Challenge Blog!

  9. Both tree cards are great. Really like the first one. I like adding a tag to cards. No I have never tried paste. Would be fun to try.
