Colored Embossing Paste



I still need to finish the on-line stencil class, but in the meantime I watched Laura's great video for this week's PTI MIM challenge.  There's something magical when you lift up a stencil & see the design.  I only have white paste & now I may decide no need to buy colors. I have very few dye reinkers, but pressing a Distress Ink pad onto an acrylic block worked great!  I used Peacock Feathers & Dried Marigold to get as close as I could to the challenge at Colour Me.  I used my only PTI cover plate, Hexagon, with the sentiment & tags from Tiny Tags.  I added Rock Candy glitter while the paste was wet & to the tags.  The little flower was sponged with Dried Marigold & a bit of Stickles was added.  The little heart is covered with the dried colored embossing paste & Crystal Lacquer. I could spend all day making cards with this technique--really fun, if you haven't tried it. My colors are summery, I think, & I do have a flower on my card, so will enter at The Mixed Media Card Challenge.
Hurrah for Friday--enjoy your weekend & thanks so much for using some of your precious time to visit my blog.

  13. Terrific embossing and coloring. Do know if you color too much paste you can store it in little plastic recycled containers. Happy playing!
