Maximize the embossing

For my second Mixed Media tutorial on the STAMPlorations blog, I am elevating the stencilling with the Embossed Textured paste technique.
This give a more dimensional effect to the stencilling as if embossing with powders multiple times, like this: 

Texture paste and embossing with stencil


Texture paste (mine is Grunge Paste from Paper Artsy)
Embossing powder (mine is Wow! in Perissa, a mix of silver, gold, and copper red )

A look at the beautiful shine....

Once you've mastered the technique nothing stops you from combining it with others... for instance adding powders in an ombre design like I did on this card:

Embossed textured paste with STAMPlorations stencil


Texture paste (Grunge paste as before)
Embossing powders: Wow! Vintage Peacock, Seaglass, Blue Pearl and Frantage Aged Aqua (Stampendous).

Just for you... the shine look!

Do check out my step by step on the STAMPlorations blog.  I will be back next month for a new technique...
