Today have a card for the CAS Stencil April Challenge which asks for the use of embossing pastes/gels. I have a new stencil and glossy white Stencil Dimensions from Sweet Poppy which I have been wanting to use. Here is the card I made:
I really like cards made with craft card but I don't make them myself very often because I never think they come out very well. However, I decided to have a go this time after watching the technique videos shared as examples of the technique. I am fairly happy with the end result, I think!
The dimension paste is white and glossy and I found that it happily takes watercolour on top when it is dry and it keeps its glossy finish. After I had done the stencilling I noticed that the edge is actually straight so I added the green glossy strip and die cut the sentiment from the same card.
The card has a lovely shine to it, that you can see in the picture above.
I am toying with the idea of adding a few clear drops, but I probably won't!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.
