Paste Stenciling with Heat Embossing

Hi everyone.  Just has to share one more card for the CAS Stencil May Challenge - Stenciling over a Coloured Background.


I started by smoshing my favourite combination of colours on mixed media paper (Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade).

Once dry, I cut down my panel and placed a large flower stencil over top, just using about 1/4 of the design.  A palette knife was used to add white embossing paste.  I removed the stencil and quickly sprinkled with gold tinsel embossing powder.  I left it to dry before heat setting the embossing powder ... or so I thought.  The paste started to puff up a bit as I was heating it, which means it wasn't completely dry.  I was still happy with the look. :)

A simple sentiment was heat embossed in gold and a white, square frame was added around the panel.

Here's a close-up ...
There's still a few days left to play along before the challenge closes.  Hope to see you in the gallery!

Stunning card and the colour combination is beautiful. The pop of gold is vibrant and fabulous. Thanks for the tip of knowing when the paste is dry and the little bit of bubbling adds another layer of texture x

I need to try the embossing powder over the paste - I'll try out both wet and dry versions. Yours is so lovely, it's inspiring me! Though I think I need to devote a few days to my garden first!

A beautiful card Loll. I do love the bubbled look when it happens - give a bit more texture and depth. Stunning result with the gold and that super background. Fabulous frame too. Was hoping to play with this technique this month but times has run away again.

A fabulous gold bloom on the beautiful smooshed background, Loll! The texture of the embossing paste heat-embossed with gold EP looks amazing in the close-up pic.
The frame is wonderful! It's on my wish list. :-)
