Today's card marks something totally new for me. I have been seeing beautiful cards made with different brands of embossing paste and stencils. I finally got some modeling paste from Michael's - made by Artist Loft (Michael's house brand). I decided to give it a try because it's a lot less expensive than the other brands around. It comes in a tube rather than a jar. Also, it's off white rather than white. But I decided to give it a try anyway.
I was really happy with the results. I didn't get it totally even, but I think that adds to the charm. I layered two die cut flowers and added some hand cut leaves. I popped a sequin onto the flower and a placed a bit of glitter glue in the sequin's center. Then I stamped and heat embossed the Hero Arts sentiment on vellum - stamping on vellum is also new for me. I will come back later and enter some challenges.
Edited to enter these challenges: Stamplorations August Challenge - Stamps/Die Cuts; PDE Linky Party #17 - Metal Dies or Punches; and The Cutting Edge #8 - I was inspired by the white background and flowers on Kay's card.
