i hope when you...

Hello friends!!   Have a little card to share that I made the other day.  Right now mixed media is all the rage.  I have pretty much not joined in on this trend for several reasons.  One being that I just don't have the space to store the additional supplies that I would need.  Another reason is that I really don't have the space needed to fully engage in this trend, ie... no room to get messy.   But a few months ago the Make It Monday challenge was to create a project using dimensional paste and I was intrigued by this because I liked the look of the fibre paste that was used and I realized that I didn't have to spend the money buying stencils... I could make them myself with some of the many dies I own!  YAY!!   So a week or so ago I finally got to Michaels and picked up a jar of Golden Fibre Paste. 


I had been looking around for an idea to help me get motivated to use the fibre paste and when the new Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try came out I found my project.  I started by using a some scrap cardstock to die cut my stencil using the My Favorite Things Disbursed Dots Die-namics.  I took a piece of cream cardstock and adhered a strip of patterned paper from the BasicGrey Serenade 6x6 pad.  Once that was done I laid my stencil on top, taped it down and then applied the fibre paste.  After carefully removing my stencil I set the piece aside to dry.  Another piece of patterned paper was cut and stamped with the sentiment from the RC set Count Your Rainbows using Rich Cocoa ink.  The stars were die cut using the Verve Starry die.  A button/twine embellishment was added to the largest star and then some sequins to finish off the card.  So there it is... my little play with fibre paste.  I quite like how things turned out and I'm already thinking about ways to incorporate it into my projects in the future!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI cream, fine linen; PP:  BasicGrey; Golden Fibre Paste; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa; Twine:  Hempotique; Sequins:  Lawn Fawn; Dies:  My Favorite Things & Verve; Button:  PTI

Smart girl to use your die to make the stencil! I do like the dimension the paste gives your design- a fun alternative to embossing!

Hello Rosie
Only you could use embossing paste on a creation in a CAS way, I bet you didn't even get any on your fingers!!!!
Fabulous card with the dimensional faux snow.
You may have to look into finding an area to play Rosie, as I think you would teach many of us how to do it cleanly, although I have to admit getting messy is all part of the fun.
