One of the things we learned in our Stenciled Online Card Class was how to use embossing powder with embossing paste and stencils. I have had a tough time mastering this, but I finally got it, so I'll share the results.
Here is card #1:
I used the Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Heart stencil with white embossing paste, then covered it with different embossing powders. After it dried and I heat-set it, I had a bunch of red powder all over the white part, so I cut it out.
As an experiment, I covered a piece of card stock with anti-static powder before I added the embossing paste. I was afraid the paste wouldn't stick on top of the powder, but it seemed to do fine. After heat-embossing, there was less of the stray powder, even though there was still some, so I guess it was a success.
Here's that card:
I think these large stencils are perfect canvases for the large sentiments I have that I so rarely use.
I'm off to stamp some more. Thanks for stopping by!
