Just Because – a2z Scrapbooking August Challenge

1 Comment

Hello everyone,

It’s Donna here with a2z Scrapbooking August challenge which is embossing, you can use embossing paste on your project, or use embossing powder or embossing folders. I choose to use embossing paste on my project. If I can recall, this is my first time using embossing paste on a card. It’s not perfect, but I must say, I like how it turned out. I like the embossed roughness look and the feel of my card. I used Hero Arts showdow inks to add color to my card. Here is what I did………….

This is the embossing paste that I put on the craft mat and added
some ink.  I folded in the paste with the embossing
knife until I had the color I wanted (adding more to the mat).

After I got the color I wanted, I took my knife and smoothed the paste on the stencil.  My paste was not as smooth when I finished, but I like the overall look.  I hope I have inspired you to create something for this challenge.
