CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Embossing Paste

Good Morning, Stampers!

Create with Connie and Mary has a fun hop for you
this week! We are playing with paste - 
Embossing Paste that is!

I tried a little something different with this card. 
I applied a thin coat of paste onto the card panel.
Then, I opened the Garden Trellis embossing folder
and pressed the side with the logos firmly onto 
the paste for a few seconds. Then carefully lifted it
up and allowed it to dry completely before 
finishing it up with stamps and embellishments.
(** Don't forget to wash the paste off the embossing
folder and tools immediately** )

To color the paste, I added rubbing alcohol to a Stampin' Spritzer 
with a few drops of Calypso Coral ink refill and lightly sprayed.

It looks pretty cool, I think! I have a 
lot of embossing folders to try out now!

Great technique with the embossing paste and folder for the background. That's thinking out of the box. Beautiful Fall colours in your leaves. Thanks for sharing.
