This week the Stampendous team is focusing on using Embossing Paste.
This paste is perfect for using for Mixed Media projects.
Today I am going to show how I used the paste to create a beautiful background with stencils.This background was inspired by this little cutie, Potted Mouse.
To create this background:
Set aside to dry.
When dry, place the stencil back in place and sponge on color with chalk inks.
I use the Picasso Stencil to help cover spots that I don't want to get colored.
I used Olive Pastel Chalk ink for the leaves and stems and Yellow Citrus chalk ink on the flower petals.
I added Chestnut Roan to the center of the flowers.
Remove the stencil to reveal this amazing background!
Add the background to a brown card panel.
Tie brown ribbon around the panel and then add the colored image as shown.
