Hi, everybody. Today I'm having a play with homemade embossing paste and some of the ARTplorations stencils.
Here is another image which captures the sparkle a little better. I rather like the simplicity of the coloured blossom with the added glitter combined with the bold sentiment.
This time I used the whole of the stencil image to cover a piece of white card. I securely attached my card to the stencil, reverse side, before spreading my embossing paste across. Once dried, I layered onto matching red card, added some faux stitching in dark grey, stamped, layered, and added my sentiment from Bloom Sketches before finishing off using some tiny golden stars.
As always there is a little video explaining how I mixed my embossing paste, showing the texture I achieved and the usual tips as I go along with getting messy.
Hope you feel inspired to get messy making some scented cards. We here at STAMPlorations would love to see them. Let us know what scent you've chosen. It will be fun imagining!
Have a lovely weekend!
PS: Mine is Imperial Leather, we've had it for ages and used to use it to treat the rubber seals around the caravan windows.
