Embossing Paste and Embossing Powder!

Hi! Chrissie here today - Happy Monday!!!
I wanted to share how I made a card using Q-Tips to ink up stamps AND how I added embossing powder to embossing paste!

I used the new Penelope's Blossoms and coordinating die cuts.

I used a Q-Tip to ink of the stamp so I could have a variation of colors.  I used the light color for the outside and then went in with a darker color for the center of the flower.  I love this effect!

Then I grabbed a stencil and used my palette knife to added some embossing paste to it.  Simon Says Stamp has a TON of different pastes.  They are seriously fabulous.

Before it was fully dry (I waited about 5 minutes), I dropped some embossing powder onto it and used my heat gun to heat it all up.

It gives a fun effect, especially if you add some ink and do an emboss resist technique (like I did below)!

This technique really adds great texture and makes the card super interesting! I hope you'll give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by!
