Case Study Challenge - Embossing Paste

Texture was my inspiration for this week's Case Study Challenge.  I just love the texture in the gold embossing on this design.  I was also inspired by the blending of the ink colors.  Gorgeous!  

So with those two inspirational elements, I created my design using embossing paste, which is a new product that I've never used.  Can you say "fun"!?!?  I am definitely hooked on embossing paste. 

I used a stencil purchased from Add a Little Dazzle and embossing paste from Dreamweaver (which also came fro AALD).  You just lay your stencil down and carefully smooth the paste over, scraping the excess as you go.  Then you lift the stencil and you have your embossed design on your card or panel.  Once it dries, you can ink it up, as I did in my design.  I started with a black card base, and my embossing paste is just the standard white.  

I did use a little bit of white iridescent ink on the edges of trees that are right over my sun image. 

I kept my sentiment small, as I didn't want to cover up too much of my design.  And my inside sentiment  . . .
