Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
Prepare your texture paste and some acrylic paint. For the paint, I'm using a Free Flow magenta but it is up to you which color you would love to use.
Next, I've got a palette here for my texture paste. I scooped a bit of paste and placed it into my palette.

After that, I put a couple of drops of the Free Flow magenta acrylic paint into the texture paste and mixed it carefully. I just love how the white blends with the magenta color.
Let's move on to our main cardstock background. Before I proceed with imprinting of the stencil, I wanted to make it a bit of white so our hearts would stand out more gracefully. To do that, I grabbed an old paintbrush and flicked some white acrylic paint into our cardstock.
Once the splattered white paint dries, I'm going to press the stencil down and scoop some of our white paste and magenta acrylic mixture.
As you press the stencil hard, slowly spread the beautiful and brightly-colored texture paste in the heart cutouts. Make sure all the holes are filled.
The textured and bright hearts in the background will definitely lift up any page beautifully!
