Gold Embossing on Texture Paste

Hello everyone!! Hope you all had a good crafty time yesterday, the world card making day. I was able to make one card.

I recently bought some texture paste, but was a little hesitant to start using it. But believe me, once I started, there's no stopping. The first 2 times were not as good. I did not secure the card and the stencil well enough. This is my second successful attempt. I've seen Jennifer McGuire's video of using embossing powder on texture paste. I thought of giving it a try. I love it!! I then watercolored it. Again, that was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's video here. I embossed two strips of paper with the same gold powder, so that it matches well.

The sentiment is an SVG file from Bird's cards. I used glossy accent on it.

I wanted to share my crafty space with you all. Here are a few pics of it. I store my stuff in Sterlite carts. I took this pic just after I cleaned my table. Believe me, it's not this clean always :). But I do try to keep it clean otherwise,  my daughter pulls up everything and starts using it ;)

Submitting this to Winnie & Walter - Craftie.

Thanks for stopping by. Please do let me know how your day was, and of course, I would love to know your thoughts on the card.

Wow, this is beautiful! Just love the shimmer you captured in the photo! That stencil design is gorgeous too!

Love the golden texture...looks amazing and I bet it looks even more stunning in real as gold is so difficult to photograph and oooh your space is so neat. Mine is a mess right now and get that way whenever I use it. You have inspired me to have a clean up session
