Stencil Lesson #2 - FMS122



Day two of my stencil class featured embossing paste and ways to use it.  I had never even heard of embossing paste and I was intrigued!  I kept my card simple today to showcase the paste in the background.  It was so easy to use - just spread it over the stencil and let it dry!  It adds such great texture to the background.  Stay tuned for Lessons 3 and 4!



Cindy has blocked out a great sketch for this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

All those dots, although no Candy Dots, are to die for! Love how it all coordinates with the dots. It's dot-a-riffic!

OH how I love this beautiful card. Love the polka dots of course and this is fab with large/small dots in black & white. Very safisticated! hugs.

Those little stenciled dots remind me of fresh snow. They look pillowy soft!
