Stencil With Embossing Paste and Ink

I used the Gina K Designs Thick Brush stencil and Stamp Market Few Words stamps/dies to make a couple cards to share with you:)!!...
I useds my distress inks sponged over the entire stencil/card panel.  I let inks dry, then placed the stencil back over the dried rainbow of inks.  I used Translucent Embossing Paste over the entire stencil.  I let the paste dry, then I cut two strips from the panel, and made both cards with The Stamp Market sentiments, the first with the"thinking of you" sentiment.  Here's a close up...
The second, just like the first, except with the "thank you" sentiment ...
Here's a close up of the shine of the paste with the ink!  I also used Tonic Jewel drops to give the panels a little bling...
Such fun!!  Hope you're having a great week with some fun, too!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. These cards are beautiful, Lisa. Can't wait to try this technique! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Love the colors and design!

  3. Gorgeous!!! So, I'm wondering if this technique provides a different look than if you were to have ink blended and then used the translucent embossing paste? I wonder if the colors are more vibrant this way. I didn't think the Oxides would actually dye the dried embossing paste. Good to know! Thanks for sharing and pls comment if you tried it both ways or know what the difference would be. TY!!!

    1. Karen, your comment got me had been so long since I made these two cards, you are right...I used the inks FIRST, then covered with translucent paste!! I made these cards A WHILE ago, and the specifics got a bit hazy! I had done the technique I described on this post, on another card... my blog post!! Thanks for jarring my memory, Karen...hope you have a great weekend!


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
