We've been playing with the structure paste and quite enjoying the varied uses in cardmaking.

A lesson to be learned!Substrate: noun
a solid substance or medium to which another substance is applied and to which that second substance adheres.
Case in point my latest watercolor technique. This blog wasn't going to be about paper and the significant role it plays in your card projects .... but I figured why waste a good learning opportunity.
(of a material, substance, or byproduct) eliminated or discarded as no longer useful or required after the completion of a process.

It probably goes without saying at this point, that I enjoy creating backgrounds with which to build my card creations.
The "salt technique" is used in canvas painting and I thought I'd adopt it into card making.
You can use water color paper, but I'm not a fan of the texture of watercolor paper so I use regular card stock but "seal" it with watercolor primer (Cosmic Shimmer #CSWCPR01).
Using the Cosmic Shimmer Watercolor paints and a broad brush, I cover the paper as needed for my card project.

I saw a watercolor background technique using the watercolor markers and an acrylic block. So I did that for the background of this card.
The second thing I was wanting to try was use the 3D tab inserts of the box card die to have something dangling from the top of this box card. I accomplished that with this card as well.
