“Just a Note” Card with Embossing Paste Background

by Aga

Hello, everyone! This is Aga here today, and I would like to share with you a simple card with lots of texture made using an embossing paste.

Altenew Embossing Paste Aga 1I started by creating a background for my card and I chose to use Altenew's Embossing Paste with Feeling Dotty Stencil. I decided to mix the paste with a little amount of ink from Watercolor Brush Markers – Spring Garden Set and I used a Watercolor Palette to mix it up.

While the paste was drying, I worked on the rest of the card. I stamped a floral image from Weekend Doodles Stamp Set with Permanent Black Crisp Ink and again used the Watercolor Brush Markers to color it in. I fussy cut out the flower. Then, I cut out two circles using Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set and stamped a sentiment on the smaller one before adhering everything to the card.

Like the idea of mixing the basic color paste with markers. This way you do not have so many color jars around. Make your own.
