It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #70 – colors.
And here is my take:
This was my first attempt at using embossing paste and a stencil. I definitely need to work on technique! I’m not sure how I got so much paste squished under the stencil, I did tape it down quite well. I suppose practice will help.
To do the gradated colors, I started with plain white paste and added re-inker drops.
Stamping on the paste also made a bit of a mess – it bled too much (but that was probably my fault as I was using lots of pressure to get between the paste – in hindsight I should have just used a marker to fill in). Live and learn!
I do like the concept of the card.
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
