Here is MY take on the challenge......


You cannot really notice it too much, but on the right my diamond pattern is modelling paste I've coloured and with the Wendy Vecchi diamond stencil, smeared over a 5x7 cardstock!  I thought I was so clever with my one colour, waiting for it to dry and then repeating with a different colour (I moved the stencil to create an even pattern) I did have GRAND PLANS for this huge bit of altered cardstock!! but alas, I had a little chuckle as I used probably 10 cm on this project! lol!  Another shout out for Avery Elle stamps... ( I so should be getting paid by these companies!) really love them!
AnYwaY I'm off to go buy my Mother's day breakfast ingredients......

Thanks for popping in and now head on off to 
 Linda's gorgeous blog

Great layout and the strong colours are beautiful together. I appreciate your stencilling, I have been having fun making my own paste but haven't ventured into colouring it yet. Things can get messy, can't they!

Great. I haven't used textured paste (have bought but not opened!).
Enjoy your Mother's Day and hope you get some part of the day to craft.
