We're really excited about this week's fantastic launch of Sheena Douglass stamps and stencils! And to make things even more fun, we're adding the complete line of Dreamweaver Stencils embossing pastes and accessories!
Chrissie created a great tutorial to share how she used her new embossing paste (and tinted it with Spectrum Noir markers) to create this fun card:
Coming Wednesday, October 15th: Sheena Douglass 'Big Apple' stencil; Dreamweaver Stencils White Embossing Paste, palette knife, paste spreader
Other Crafter's Companion US supplies:
Step 1: Adhere your stencil and card base using a low tack tape (I've used washi tape here). This is to prevent movement of the stencil or cardstock.
Step 2: Tint the white embossing paste by first scribbling a bit of ink (IG7) on craft mat (or other surface such as an acrylic block).
Step 3: Using a palette knife mix paste into the wet ink.
Step 4: Load the now-gray paste onto the paste spreader with the palette knife, then apply to the stencil. To create an ombre effect, add a bit of white also.
Step 5: Slowly peel stencil away and wash immediately in warm water. Place a second stencil down on top of still-wet paste. Press gently!
Step 6: Follow the same process outlined above to add white paste to the cardstock.
Step 7: Add embossing powder to the wet paste.
Step 8: Dry the paste and powder with a heat gun, which will make the powder bubble a bit but for this card, that was the desired effect. Alternatively you could let it all air dry.
Color the stamped image with IG7, LG3, LG4, IG4.
Step 9: Once dry, add Distress Inks as desired (here, Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone, Mustard Seed).
Step 10: Add in sprays for shimmer and shine (here, Fireworks Spray in Desert Sand and Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Gold).
Step 11: Heat emboss a sentiment and cut into banner, then place on card.
