Inspire.Create.Challenge #156 | Creating an Embossing Paste Background…

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge. This time we have a really interesting colour combination of Balmy Blue, Lemon Lolly and Moody Mauve. I took a little while to ponder this one, but settled on using the ever so lovely Timeless Arrangements bundle, but needed something in the background.

I settled on using the Abundant Beauty Masks, but rather than just inking through the mask, I pulled out the Embossing Paste instead.

Top Tips;

  1. Use your Silicone mat as a holding place for your paste. I add ink to the mat and then put the paste on top and mix using a Palette knife to get coloured paste.
  2. Add more paste that you think you’ll need, you can always scrape it off or use more to add more texture
  3. Make sure you clean anything you’ve used your paste with quickly afterwards using soap and water… this stuff dries really solid!
  4. You don’t need to cover the whole piece of cardstock with paste, leaving white space can be really pretty
