Quite a Pear Card and Cartridge Giveaway!

So here I am thinking about my favorite stencil...the pear from Dreamweaver! So I thought I would post a simple card I made using the same stencil!





step 1 - I mixed a little yellow paste with pearl paste and a little metallic
fx (green)



step 2 - tape down the stencil and and spread the paste on the card




step 3 - remove tape and stencil



step 4 - apply a little gold glitter to one edge of the the still wet paste and mica flakes to the leaf.



step 5 - let dry



step 6 - layer on various papers and distress the edges using distress ink and applicator.






It is so fun! I love embossing paste! Check out my blog for other projects and also the new blog by Dreamweaver!

Kristi,

Where have I been?! I've never even heard of embossing paste! Love it, though! Will have to try it...

Thanks for sharing,

Jennifer

P.S.
I love pears, too...might have something to do with my last name being partridge. ;)

Kristi said...

that is too funny jennifer. yep, the paste is amazing! I am sure I use it in ways it was never intended in my art at times!
