Harvest Owl: Playing with Paste


We are still playing with paste over on the Stampendous blog! Have you tried embossing paste yet? Hopefully you've been inspired to play after seeing so many great projects this week!
***If you are looking for my A Day for Daisies and Left of Center post, please click HERE.
For today's card, I used the brand new Harvest Owl stamp, along with one of my all-time favorite stencils, the Houndstooth. 



Instructions:

  1. Color the Harvest Owl using Chameleon Colors listed, or other colors of your choosing. Then, you can cut the image out.
  2. Using the largest Label One die from Spellbinders, die cut a purple piece of Bazzil cardstock. 
  3. Cut card base using cardstock- 6 1/2 x 9 3/4." The edges were then inked with embossing ink, and Aged Wine Embossing Powder was heated and melted (from the bottom of the cardstock).
  4. Blue cardstock was cut to fit inside the card base, and one side was ripped for added texture. The Houndstooth stencil was placed on to the blue cardstock, and Glossy Black Embossing Paste was applied only to certain areas. One side was embossed first to accommodate the size of the cardstock versus the stencil. While the paste was still wet, Metallic F/X Powder (colors listed in supplies) was sprinkled on by using a brush dipped into the powder and then tapped over the paste. Gently tap the cardstock once the colors have been applied to blend the colors a bit. Brush off the excess once the paste is dry. Once the first side was dry, this step was repeated on the other side of the cardstock. 
  5. The final step is to attach all of your pieces, including a pretty ribbon from May Arts.
