Eclectic Ellapu

Hello to all my wonderful followers hope you are all having a fab week. Its the start of a new challenge over at eclectic ellapu on the first of every month and the theme  for the purple team was set my me this month yay ! I chose texture paste/ embossing. So plenty of scope there. I made a tag. I purchased texture paste recently to use with my Tim Holtz stencils and love it. Heres my halloween texture tag.......

I wanted a different colour for my paste so took a little and mixed it with some imagination crafts silkies and loved the way I changed the colour. Think I will try even more colours now. Cheaper than buying lots of different pastes !!
Well please do drop by and take a look at what my wonderful team mates have made. 
Thanks for stopping by 
Take care
