As soon as I spotted the Embossing Paste in the new annual Catalogue I knew I HAD to try it! I have never used embossing paste before, but I love the look of it. However, once it arrived, I froze, I took the lid off, but I couldn’t use it!
So, when James reminded me that he needed a Birthday Card for his older brother at the end of last month, I decided to put on my big girl pants and give this stuff a go! Although, I did make him pick the stamps!
So, I stamped the sentiments first in Archival Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock, and then stamped the Guy onto a separate piece of card stock. He was the coloured in using Watercolour Pencils and a blender pen, and fussy cut.
The embossing paste was really easy to use… I have a glass top on my desk and I dumped a large pea sized amount of paste onto the desk and added a drop of Bermuda Bay reinker. The paste is really easy to move and mix with the Palette Knives that you can find with the paste in the catalogue. I used one of the new Pattern Party Decorative Masks to create this fun pattern, and added a sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter before it was dry. The embossing paste does take a few minutes to dry, but its not long, but long enough that it gives you time to make sure you mask, desk and palette knife is clean! I would advise that you make sure that your equipment is cleaned after each use, embossing paste is hard once it is dry and REALLY difficult to get off!
Once the embossing paste was dry I added the Guy onto the front of the card with some dimensionals, and stamped the inside of the card to match!
