Butterfly Basics - Sending Wishes your Way


Look at my very first attempt at using Embossing paste! It is sooo easy to use and much less messy than I thought! You should be able to find embossing paste at your local craft store! I went for a Strawberry Slush tone on tone look by adding a few drops of re-inker to the embossing paste and mixing it thoroughly. My 'stencil' comes from the Artisan Embellishment Kit (see my product list for details).

This is a 3 x 3 card - I had to start small!

A closer look!

My product list:

131300 Strawberry Slush A4 cardstock (p 179, AC)
131302 Coastal Cabanna A4 cardstock (p 179, AC)
121717 Shimmery White A4 cardstock (p 193, AC)
131175 Coastal Cabanna Classic Stampin' Pad (p 179, AC)
126974 Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad
131167 Strawberry Slush Ink Refill (p 179, AC)
137154 Butterfly Basics Photopolymer stamp set (p 26, OC) THIS IS A TRULY BEAUTIFUL SET!
137360 Butterflies Thinlits Dies ( p 26 OC) 
Artisan Embellishment Kit (p 27, OC, ribbon, pearl and the die-cut background that I used for a stencil)

The paste takes about 30 minutes to dry, so not that long to wait for a pretty card! Next time I will go bigger! I have to say I love the tone on tone look! It looks almost Velvety! 

Till next time!
