Hey again. I’m currently en route to London – hoping for an easy, breezy trip with Jacob. The 90 minute trip to London should feel like nothing compared to the 12 hour solo trip to California that I’m used to doing!
More embossing paste fun today. Truth is, this card did not turn out how I wanted. I am going to share it anyway, and hope for any suggestions on how to improve what happened. I used this Avery Elle die to create the chevron border, which I then used as my stencil.
I wanted an ombre effect of chevrons along the top – I colored white paste with various shades of yellow & orange re-inkers. By the time I got to the darkest row of chevrons on the right, the stencil would no longer lay flat against the cardstock, thanks to the previous chevrons. So, I didn’t get the crisp lines on the last row. I’m not sure if I could have done anything to prevent this, but after many failed attempts, this was the best one, so I’m just accepting it and moving on!
This is another one for Virginia’s View Stencil challenge!
Thanks so much for stopping by – I really appreciate each & every visit from you guys.
