Can you see the stencil I used with the embossing paste on this card? I thought it would be fun to try using the dragonflies. Here are the steps I used to make my stencil.
1. Use a piece of window sheet. It is stiff enough to make a stencil.
2. Cut out your desired stencil. At first I looked at what was left over when I cut out the strips of dragonflies and it was too open for what I wanted to use. Then, I looked at the strip and decided to try to put the paste over them.
3. I mixed the paste with the new Tranquil Tide in-color ink. I knew when I applied the paste that it would go beyond the edges of the stencil, so I did it intentionally. I moved the stencil to two different spots on the card stock. Then I filled in open areas with splotches of the paste. I loved the end results. And what better saying to put on this card than one about friends.
I hope you have had fun looking at these cards and are kind of excited about trying out the paste on your own. Don't work with a demonstrator already, then order from me from the link at the top of the page.
Next week, I will for sure show off the cards you will be able to make at my New Catalog Premier. Have a great week, and have fun stamping.
