I am here with a2z Scrapbooking August challenge which is embossing, you can use embossing paste on your project, or use embossing powder or embossing folders. I choose to use embossing paste on my project. If I can recall, this is my first time using embossing paste on a card. It's not perfect, but I must say, I like how it turned out. I like the embossed roughness look and the feel of my card. I used Hero Arts showdow inks to add color to my card. Here is what I did.............
This is the embossing paste that I put on the craft mat and added some
ink. I folded in the paste with the embossing knife
until I had the color I wanted (adding more ink to the mat).
After I got the color I wanted, I took my knife and smoothed the paste on the stencil. My paste was not as smooth when I finished, but I like the overall look. I hope I have inspired you to create something for this challenge.
