I've had a bit of fun this morning playing with a fe new products. I LOVE the new embossing paste- and I've been waiting for ages for SU to bring out some materials for mixed media.
- This paste is light and very easy to spread
- it dries quickly and gives a beautiful finish
- It can be easily coloured with our refill inks to create a perfect match.
This weeks colours are just lovely together.
In my card I have used marina mist ink to colour the paste and used the brick wall mask. This is spread over a watercolour wash using Marina Mist- I just love the layers of colour.
To create the leaves I used the 3 ink colours from the challenge and the baby wipe technique to get the variegated leaves using the Colorful Seasons stamp set and framelits.
I don't currently have any Early Espresso cardstock but I do have some very old (retired) Early Espresso heat emboss powder, and I have used this for the sentiment on vellum.
Of course I ended up with loads of leaves because I had to use up all the ink from the baby wipe stamp pad - AND I had more paste than I needed so I had to use that up before it dried - so I made 2 more! I have to say I do love the tone on tone paste- blue paste on blue card is stunning in real life.
I wish I had more time today because I'd love to get some more of that paste spread around!!!
If you purchase the paste be sure to get the mask and spatulas. (just click on the image below to take you to my online store to order your very own little jar of fun!)
But you could also create your own mask using window sheets. mmmmm definitely need more hours in the day!
Next this week on the hop is the Gentle Julia, I can't wait to see what she creates after receiving her lovely swap recently. You have 3 Queenslanders in a row, with Lou before me this week. It's such lovely weather up here in winter. Feel free to come visit me in sunny Rockhampton, I'm sure we could have fun stamping together, but if not visit me on my Facebook page Lillybet's Papers or on Pinterest!
Don't be afraid to contribute to our Facebook page after you create something with these colours. They are not as hard to put together as some of the the other challenges we've had. We'd love to see what you create.
Thanks for looking, and remember
"don't just post online,
post something pretty!"
