Backgrounds with Embossing Paste

Make It Monday #176: Backgrounds with Embossing Paste. I mistakenly ordered the Crackled Embossing Paste instead of the smooth, but that means it fits for Simon Says Scratched Up. In the video, Laura said the embossing paste can be colored by smooshing the inkpad on the mat as an alternative to adding a drop of re-inker.  It was not quite as dark as I think re-inker would be, but it is nice to have a break from all the brown re-inkers I have lol. I used Ocean Tides, Hawaiian Shores and Simply Chartreuse to color the embossing paste. 

She also demonstrated stacking multiple die cuts to add solid dimension, and that worked well too.But it is good to use a glue with a little "slip" to it.  The die and stamps are from Make It Market Co.: Shakers and Sprinkles and stamped with Ocean Tides and Golden Harvest. The stencil "Power Lines" is from the book Stencil Me In by Marthe Le Van.

Hey Ohhh Snap!! I love your card. It reminds me of the wire poles in my neighborhood. What stencil did you use for this. Nicely done.

This card is absolutely stunning! I adore the simplicity of the power lines, yet you've made them so sophisticated with the paste and color palette. It is gorgeous! I also really like how you did the sentiment in different fonts and how the "scatter" stands out so well. This was a very inspiring piece that I thoroughly enjoyed seeing. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
