I thought that the peacock stencil went really well with this particular paper - Feather Fancy. If you are a regular to my blog, you'll also see that I've included some of my "old neighbor's ribbon stash"! I would love to find more of that, if anyone has any idea, please share info!
I temporarily attached the stencil to the paper and applied embossing paste over the stencil. Remove the stencil and wash it. When the paste is dry, (I leave it overnight to be safe) put the stencil back over the dry paste and apply Versamark, remove stencil and heat emboss with Black Detail. The base of embossing paste really makes the "image" pop!
I embossed the sentiment with Belgian Cream, this is my favorite white embossing powder to use on dark cardstock. It is an opaque embossing powder and gives great coverage, even with a detailed stamp.
Well that's all for today, hope I've inspired you to look out some stencils and start playing. I bet, you can't stop at one card though!
Now I'm going to leave you with a sneak preview of what my next blog share will be. Using the same Feather Fancy paper, and one of the new sets that were revealed this month, Set 525: Dress Up, I paper pieced one of the dresses:
Loving these papers! See you soon,
