I am really loving embossing paste! It gives great texture and interest and that's great for masculine cards that I always try to bling up. The card today is one that I started with one idea and ended with another card idea entirely.
So I started with a half a sheet of white cardstock, Neenah 110 lb. I found this cool stencil at my local scrap book store. It's mini gears from crafter's studio. I taped the cardstock to my craft mat and taped the stencil over that and layered embossing paste onto the cardstock. I didn't try to make it smooth and left a thick layer of embossing paste. Then I let it dry over night.
After it was dry, I choose some colors and sponged the ink on top of the embossing paste and got an emboss resist effect. I choose Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry.
The photo is really shiny because the embossing paste I used is the Dream Weavers Glossy White. I added some washi tape to the front of the card and a sentiment from Stampin Up, cut with a matching framelit, and a cool wood veneer from Studio Calico. The card base is Cajun Craze from Stampin' Up.
This is a close up of the veneer bike. I love wood veneers! They are rapidly becoming a favorite embellishment.
Thanks for looking!
