I Love You To The Stars....

Hi all!!  I've been experimenting!  Experimenting with different embossing pastes - and I have a new love!!  This stuff is so addicting!  Instant gratification! I am also doing something that I haven't done in a while!  Playing in challenge! I haven't actually been a participant in a while of a challenge.  Lately, I have had only enough time to complete DT projects - but today I am making the time to enter to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -  make your own background.  I haven't participated in this challenge before, so it is something fun and different for me.

I started out by taking a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of Marshmallow card stock, and used Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, and Dusty Concord Distress Inks, and created by "Night Sky". Then, I have a Studio Calico Mask with Stars and used it with Silver Ferro embossing paste.  This stuff is AHHmazing!! The texture is awesome once it is dry.  Once it was dry - I then took one of my Lawn Fawn Star Stackables and die cut through my panel, and then I backed it with another piece of Marshmallow Card stock and then I adhered it to a black card base.  I stamped my sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Lucky Stars stamp set.  To finish it off I added some faux stitching to bring out the star on the white card stock.

If you haven't tried embossing paste - DO it! It is fun and a warning you will be addicted!  :)
