Hello and Happy Friday! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog Karla asked us to design a card featuring Embossing Paste. I thought I had white embossing paste that was current but found out too late that I only had the retired silver paste from a few years ago. You could mimic this look by mixing frost white shimmer paint and smoky slate ink into the white embossing paste. I used it with the Pattern Party decorative mask and think it adds great texture to the mint macaron cardstock. Added bonus - it looks like lattice. One word of advice after spreading the paste - carefully peel up the mask and then immediately wash it with warm soapy water. You'll want to set the card stock aside to let it completely dry, also.
Here in this close-up photo you can see the texture a little better. I stamped the flower image from the Healing Hugs stamp set with real red ink on a separate piece of card stock, fussy-cut it and mounted it with stampin' dimensionals on top of the leaves that had been stamped on the panel with mossy meadow ink. I also added some braided linen trim to the card for added texture.
I kept it simple on the inside of the card, stamping a foliage image in the bottom corner and a sympathy sentiment from the Flourshing Phrases stamp set in the center using Mossy Meadow ink.
Here is another look at my card. For even more fabulous embossing paste ideas please hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to see what my fellow designers created this week.
