Hi there!  It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! Thanks to all who joined along with last week's challenge! Seems as though stencils are all the rage and we've noticed an increasing variety of paste mediums to go along. This week, we challenge you to get our your paste or stencils and make some texture on your project! Whether you're a  fan of gel mediums or embossing pastes, using gesso and a stencil to make texture or you just love "pasting" bits of paper together "decoupage style" ~ let's see what you can do!

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag featuring lots of texture that was created using the Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil along with Liquitex modeling paste:
I also added texture on the die cut Mini Butterfly:
After creating the colorful, textured background, I topped the tag off with a beautiful blossom that was made using Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret along with the coordinating Heartfelt Creations Spellbinders Vintage Floret dies:
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
