Embossing Paste Experiment

I decided to try my hand at making my own stencil or mask for the embossing paste with framelits and then I wanted to see if I could stamp the coordinating stamp image onto the paste. Here's what I did.....

I used the small leaf framelit from the Leaflet Framelits set and cut out a random pattern of leaves. I then used that as my stencil to design my paste leaf background. I had mixed a bit of Pear Pizzazz reinker to get a good green color to my paste. and went to work. You need to be a little careful with it because as the stencil picks up the moister from the paste it will become delicate.

I then let that dry.....

and once it was mostly dry I stamped the paste leaves it with the coordinating leaf stamp from the Vintage Leaves stamp set.

Then I proceeded to build my card.

This was my first go at it so I'm sure with a little more practice I can get better at it. But for now I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

Here's a close up of the leaves....I love the way the texture comes through.
