I am here with another middle of the night crafting session. I grabbed that wonderful little jar of embossing paste. I wanted to enter a couple of challenges, Simon Monday Challenge-Paste and the Card Concept Challenge#4-Use a Floral theme.
Ever since taking the Stenciled class over at Online Card Classes, I have been in craft-love with embossing paste. I love the texture it brings to cards, I love the soft gooey feeling of it sliding over the stencil, I love adding color and embossing powder to it. It is just plain FUN!
I gathered supplies: Simon Says Stamp set Thinking of you, Hero Arts stencil Large Lotus Pattern, Wendy Vecchi white embossing paste, Stampin Up reinkers in Daffodil Delight and Strawberry Slush, Versamark ink, Hero Arts silver and white embossing powders, and Stampendous clear chunky embossing powder, Neenah aspen white 120# cardstock, foam tape, white Darice 6 mm sequins, and a sheet of paper from the Simon Says Stamp February Card kit.
I mixed in a few drops of the two colors to create a coral colored paste which I applied sparingly to the stencil. After removing the stencil I dumped a lot of the chunky clear embossing powder on top of the paste. I let it dry--sort of for about 30 minutes, then I added heat to get a very thick gloss over the paste. Hard to photograph it, but it looks very glossy. I stamped and embossed a sentiment, added the panel to my image and foam mounted them to a white card base. I believe this is a clean and layered card.
I quite like the result. Thanks for stopping by.
