CAS(E) this Sketch #50

Hello,

I am excited to share with you sketch #50 from CAS(E)  this Sketch.


This beautiful versatile sketch is by Chrissy Larson.

I have been having a bit of fun with embossing paste. Yes, I braved myself and bought it. Since my mojo was down for a while, I decided to reinstate my mojo by experimenting with something new.
But first here is my card for you.


I decided to use the black embossing paste from Wendy Venchi Studio 490 and the stencil is from The Crafter's Workshop called Echoes TCW371. It is certainly easy to use. I used my butter knife and got a little stripes on the paste as well. Love the texture and the contrast the black paste gave against the white cardstock. Here is the closeup for you. 


The butterflies and the scalloped piece are stickers from Kaisercraft Elegance Collection. The Thank You die cut is from PTI. 

It is so much fun to work with embossing paste. Now to explore stencils:) I have seen a lot of embossing paste used on journal art. I want to see what more can be done with embossing paste and stencil on cards:) I may start with pinning some projects from Debby Hughes and  Shari Caroll. Then brain storm:)
Edited: I have already started pinning after I wrote this post! Here is the link to my board - Embossing Paste on Cards

Thanks for stopping by!

Ta!
