Today, I am sharing another way to use embossing paste with our Stampin Up! inks. I love all the ways you can add color to embossing paste. Yesterday, I added the color directly to the paste before I used it. If you missed that card you can see it here. Today , though I am going to add the color to a already embossed area. It is like watercoloring. So fun and easy for a bold wow! When I saw the new pattern decorative mask, I knew I wanted to do this technique with the round pattern!
These mask give us lots of bang and wow with very little effort. I’m super excited that Stampin’ Up! included a mask that was a little more unique of a pattern. The circle one is my favorite!!! Though I know I will use the others quite often.
- The first thing is to add embossing paste through a decorative mask onto watercolor paper. And let it completely dry
- Then using reinkers as watercolor. I add color to the embossed areas. I actually used a fair amount of water so that the ink would move around on the paper.
- The two colors used are Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist
After this dried I started working on the sentiment! I get so much use out of my word dies. They are so versatile! This time I did something a little different to mine. Not only did I stack it! But, I added leafing flakes to the top!!!!
This is a leafing technique that is quite messy!!! I just saying! I even thought I was making a mess doing this! I have leafing everywhere. When you do this. Make sure you have a box lid or something to contain the leafing. And some kind of wipe like the swifter dusting wipes. You’ve been warned!!!??
- The first step was to add adhesive to the top of the die. Stampin’ Up! has the perfect product to do this. The New adhesive sheets. I die cut the image so that the sticky adhesive would be on the top of the die. Pulled off the protective layer.
- Then in a box lid added the leafing flakes to the word. Pressing them in very hard.
- The next step is to take a brush (I used a stencil brush) and with a circular motion brush off any access leafing flakes. This really makes a mess. But, it it defiantly worth the effort!
- The word is stacked on top of several of the same die. To give added dimension.
- The Thanks, is stamped in Tranquil Tide and comes from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set.
- The background layer was made by cutting stripes of adhesive sheets and adding them to the edges of card stock. Then fallowing the above directions.
