Saturday's workout "Molding or structure paste"


The technique challenge at SaWo is to use structure or molding paste. In the past I have quite often used the stuff to create some texture in backgrounds. This time I really wanted to try something else and used the paste a bit like embossing paste, namely through a stencil. That way you get a kind of embossed effect. I turned it all into a farewell card for a friend who is leaving.

The leave embellishments were punched out of previously embossed (with cuttlebug) strips of card which I then coloured with glimmermists. You can't see them very well on the scan.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
