Stencils and Custom Coloured Embossing Paste

Yes. Both of those things.  They are awesome. Super duper awesome. And I used both on this fun card...AND some watercoloring, too, just for grins and giggles.  WHAT?!!! Yup. Totes, peeps.  Totes.

I was feeling a strong urge to use some stencils based on the inspiration from both the Virginia's View Challenge and Moxie Fab World Styling With Stencils Challenge. Yup. Two challenges. It had to happen, folks. The Universe said so.

Blue Feather On Watercolor


Yup.  Blue embossing paste.  How did this come to be, you ask?  Well, let me tell you!  Take your Ranger craft mat... hit it a few times with your distress ink color of choice... fold just a *bit* of embossing paste right in that spot with a little spatula thingy (of COURSE that's the technical term) or an old gift card until the color has mixed in well.... smile because you totes just made your own custom embossing paste, YO!

Custom colored embossing paste?  Yup.  Loving this!


The background is done with watercolors through a stencil and then, after that dried I did the feather and finally stamped the hello, a fabulous Bossy Joscie stamp onto the vellum and attached that with foam pieces under the letters to hide them.  And sequins.  Always with the sequins.

An extra one, actually.  K?  K.  Thanks.  Happy.  Do it.

  9. You know I love reading your posts, right? I think I tell you that every time. But holy smokes, woman, this card totally ROCKS! Look at you being all mad scientist with mixing your own embossing paste. It reminds me of the Cold Stone people who mix your ice cream on the marble slabs. Totally awesome results. Seriously.
