New YT Video

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is featured on YouTube and uses texture past and a stencil. Embossing with Stencils   will show you how I got this look and it is a quick and easy card to create

I have covered the raised area with Distress Inks but chalks would do the same job.

You would need crafters chalks and not your childrens as they will not do the job properly.

The stencil I have used was free with Papercraft Essentials   and the issue number is 133.

It was on sale on the 5th May so should still be around in the shops

There is a gift with the magazine each month. You can use any floral stencil that you have in your own "Stash"

The texture/embossing/modelling paste are more or less the same thing and they all provide a raised surface.

You can colour this paste or add glitter to it or do as I have done and cover it with embossing powder and heat.

It will bubble up and give even more texture to your design and it gets HOT  so mind you don't burn your fingers.

Spread it onto your work with an old store card if you don't have the spatula but be sure to wash it and your stencil straight away because the paste dries hard and will spoil both if you leave it on them.

I hope you enjoy the video and there is a Shabby Chic one lined up for next week 

More tomorrow ...
