Have you tried Rayher's structure paste? It's really good. It's quite thick and good to use with stencils. It has a metalic look to it in cobber, gold, silver eller silver white and it smells of chewing gum.
Here, I have used the structure paste in cobber together with a stencil from Tim Holtz.
The shape of the card is made with a card die LDRS - LDRS: Grace Build-A-Card Dies. The paper in black and white and the with the motive with the man is My Minds Eye: Strong Man W/Copper - Hey Mister Foiled. The gray paper in the background and the wooden paper is from Majas Nyhavn collection. I have also used black Epoxy pebbles.
My new years tip is Rayher's structure paste.
