Embossing Paste Background for any occasion and JAI#373

At the embossing paste class on the weekend I demonstrated how to use 2 different colours of paste and blend them together over the stencil.
For this card I used the inkpad to stamp a generous amount of colour onto the silicone sheet and mixed the paste directly into this. I didn't use reinker drops as the colour is a bit unpredictable. This way you can add as much or as little colour as you like, picking it up from your inked area on the silicone.
I used Berry Burst and Peekaboo Peach and spread them over the mask from opposite sides.
I was very keen to use some of the stunning soft crinkle ribbon which I acquired last week!

This card is created directly onto Sahara Sand cardstock.

I love using embossing paste over stamped images, but using it over DSP also produces some lovely effects.
It is hard to go past the woodgrain paper. The sentiment stamped under the embossing is from the new Painted HArvest set.
This week's challenge over at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges is to use butterflies or dragonflies so I am entering this card this week.

I am entering these cards into Just Add Ink#373 this week 

I was inspired to make these cards after seeing a class that Jacque Williams taught and her video on Embossing Paste.
It was such a fun card to make - and a quick way to get a lot of impact.

thanks for looking and remember,

"don't just post online,

  1. Stunning Cards, Liz. Such a striking background. Love the colour combinations, and adore that crinkle ribbon with the silver accents. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week x

  2. Goodness Liz the colour is so vibrant! Love it and how that medallion stencil adds so much detail instantly but can also be a gorgeous background! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. Both of these are gorgeous Liz! I love the depth and almost ombré effect your colouring of the paste has created. It is so lovely and vibrant and combining it with the crinkly ribbon and shiny details makes for a gorgeous design. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
