This is my post for the Paper Temptress Community Blog today. I also like to submit a card every week to Make it Monday. Also this week the theme at Party Time Tuesday is anything goes. I just love techniques, so in looking through my Technique Junkies newsletters I found the Smooch Painted Texture technique. I had some of the smooch paint that I just thought I had to have and have rarely used . For this technique you emboss the image and then paint it with the smooch paint. Very simple, but gives a nice effect and helped me to use some of the supplies in my stash. I love the deep red color of the accent paper which is the wonderul Cardinal Red Treasure. The image was embossed on the Cryogen White , so it has a little sparkle to it which goes along with the pearl look of the smooch. The card itself is made of Neenah Solar White. I also added a small red bow with Burgandy Metallic Mesh. This ribbon is just a joy to make bows out of because it holds the shape so well and has great texture.
