Textured Toothpaste technique

This was another fun one using an every day household item! TOOTHPASTE! Everybody has toothpaste at home (well...unless everybody in the house has dentures I guess LOL). This technique came from the Technique Junkies Newsletter. It's pretty simple. You get one of those little painter palettes and squirt some toothpaste in the little cups. You squirt as many times as different colors you plan on using. So, for this card I had three different "squirts" of toothpaste. And, on a side note, the tutorial said it didn't matter if you used gel toothpaste or paste toothpaste. Anyway, then you add reinker to the different squirts of toothpaste and use a toothpick or spoon or whatever to stir up each squirt to mix the reinker and toothpaste. Then, you place a brass stencil over your cardstock and use a paintbrush to paint the toothpaste into the open areas of the stencil. Then, remove your stencil and cover your colored toothpaste with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder. Heat it and you are done! Here are the items I used to make this card.
