A week later I have my card from the last day of classes at Stencilled complete. On day four they let you chose a technique from the course and make a card. I chose the texture paste with embossing powder. I really like this idea. Jennifer McGuire has an example on her blog of embossing on texture paste and I took her card as my starting off point. This card is being entered in the Hero Arts Birthday Card - Anything Goes challenge
This time I let the texture paste dry over night (with the embossing powder on it) before embossing it. This version turns out really well. I also tried one where I embossed straight away (like on the star card - day 3). This time it didn't turn out as nice.
The texture paste bubbles up and the design is not as smooth. I also only have white texture paste so when the powder bubbles you can see the white underneath. Here's a picture with both cards side by side so you can see the difference.
The one on the right is smoother as that is the one I left to dry before I heat embossed it.
BTW I kinda wish I used a white card base like Jennifer did, then my colours would look better.
I am entering the first card in the Hero Arts monthly challenge : Birthday Cards. The category I am entering is Anything Goes. I have never entered their challenges before. The details are here.
