I am popping in tonight with a card for this week's Papertrey Make It Monday Challenge! It has been a busy week. I went to school this week and moved my classroom and got it decorated. I am teaching 7th grade this year. My summer vacation is almost over. I have 1 day before I officially return!
This week's PTI challenge is using embossing paste to create backgrounds. I have used embossing paste once before. It is one of those techniques where you do have to plan ahead and allow for drying time. Other than that, it is like frosting a cake.
I started with white card stock and the harlequin die to create a stencil. I combined paste and Spring Rain reinker. I decided I wanted it darker so I added some Enchanted Evening reinker. I added for a highlighted effect some plain white paste over the darker blue. I let it dry. I added gold embossed vellum feathers from Feather Finery set, a sentiment from Friendly Flowers, and some tiny clear gems and my card was complete.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
