CAS3 Day 10
I chose to follow the lesson from Joy Taylor on the use of Embossing Paste, and it's been a fun afternoon playing with it! (Actually, first I tried the lesson from Laurie Wilson on DIY Diffusers but had no luck getting it to work, so I moved on to the Embossing Paste. Any of you have that trouble?)
Fortunately the leaf stencil was right at my fingertips and I was so happy to know where it was I jumped right in with the lesson and covered it with Embossing Paste. After it dried, I created a clear panel on the card base by attaching a strip of transparency so there would be a nice window on the side of the card. Then I attached the piece with the leaf and the paste. Finally, I added the sentiment that was heat embossed with silver embossing powder and then I put a little bling here and there with silver gems.
This was my second try for the lesson -- the embossing paste got smeared on my first one -- and I am happy with the way it turned out. I think it would be a good card for a wedding.
Thanks for stopping by! I am really enjoying your visits and comments and am learning so much from each of you--keep on coming back! See you tomorrow -- the last day of our lessons?
