Friday Focus

Today I'm playing along with the CAS Stencil Challenge. This month it's all about using embossing pastes or gels with your stencils.

Here's my card:

I made the stencilled panel first by using embossing paste through the Atomic Starbursts stencil from A Colorful Life. Once this was dry I then replaced the stencil over the paste and sprinkled on some Brusho powders and spritzed it with water.

I cut a frame for the embossed panel using two sizes of square dies. The sentiment was then stamped  and I also stamped and hand cut a flower from the same Visible Image set. I popped this up onto a foam pad for extra dimension.

Here's a close up look at that embossed stencil pattern. So cool!

Stencil: A Colorful Life Designs, Atomic Starbursts
Embossing: Dreamweaver paste
Inks: Brusho, turquoise, ultramarine; Memento, tuxedo black
Stamp: Visible image, Random Act of Kindness
Die: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables
Pens: copic, B02, BV01, BV11
