Simon Says Stamp and Sister Act Challenges


Transport is the theme of the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp and anything goes at Sister Act Challenge. I am sharing a card I made with a brass stencil, Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste and Pearlex colors. I learned this technique at my local stamp shoppe. You apply the paste to a brass stencil, drop several colors of the Pearlex powder on the pasted image (other brands can be used as well), and then heat with an embossing tool. The heating of it causes the raised bubbles for a very cool look. The cloud background embossing folder and sentiment punches are from Stampin' Up.

Stamping smiles, Karen
