Celebrating with you

Make It Monday #176: Take 2 

Backgrounds with Embossing Paste 

Check out Laura Bassen's video at Make It Monday

                                         As I was lifting the Modern Cross Quilt 
                                         used on the previous card, I thought
                                        "What would the negative look like on a card?" 
                                         I quickly grabbed an A2 white card and carefully
                                         placed the still wet stencil face down on it, pressing gently.
                                         It didn't look too bad, more muted yet with some texture
                                         as you see in the second close up photo. 
                                         Hate to waste any of that fun embossing paste!

Stamp: Ruby Reprise for sentiment
