More Embossing Paste

July 22, 2017

This is the third card that I have made using the Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  This time I used Basic Black card and the large medallion mask.   I mixed some Dazzling Diamonds through the Embossing Paste before using.  I attached the Basic Black card to scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White card.  Because the pattern for this medallion is so large, I didn’t think it needed much more embellishment.  So, I simply added a greeting.   I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Basics stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I cut the greeting using a circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  I attached the greeting to a Basic Black circle cut using the same dies.  The next layer is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper punched using the 2″ Circle Punch and then a 2-1/4″ circle of Basic Black before attaching it to the card front.  I wanted to place the greeting inside the circle at the centre of the medallion.

Since I had used the greeting from Butterfly Basics stamp set and it was sitting on my desk, I used it to decorate the inside of the card.  I stamped the flower from the Butterfly Basics stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I covered the stamped flower with a post-it-note mask and then stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set several times using Old Olive ink.  I removed the mask and used Old Olive, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen to colour the flower image.

Well, what do you think?  The Dazzling Diamonds certainly make the Embossing Paste sparkle on this card but you can’t really see it in the photos.    I personally love this large medallion and think it would be fantastic for all sorts of projects.  I do think I need to work on my technique for applying the paste.  I might need to change the palette knife I use for each different folder.  I have one more sample left to share with you.

Bye for now,
