Embossing Paste + Powder

Happy Saturday!

I love Saturdays, don't you? And because I'm trying to join in more challenges, I played with some embossing techniques last night so I can add it to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I used a stencil from Studio Calico. It's one of their Huey's Masks called, Bubble Mask.


After spreading some Embossing Paste over the stencil, I sprinkled the area with Verdigris Embossing Powder from Ranger. It has the most wonderful sparkle with little bits of gold in it. Sorry it doesn't show up very well in the photo. After letting the paste dry for awhile, I used my heat gun to emboss the powder.

The little strip of gold was cut from DCWV Glitter Cardstock. The big, bold sentiment is from the same set I used on this card. It's called, Made With Love by Hero Arts and I heat embossed it with the same powder.

I was lucky to find a few gold pearls in my stash to finish off the card.

Enjoy your Saturday and happy crafting! ♥
