Make it Monday with homemade embossing paste
At Make it Monday its create your own stencil and use embossing paste cooked up by the talented Danielle Flanders. Alright - making a stencil - no big deal - I have done that before several times, bu the embossing paste....Now ages ago I actually bought that stuff and got excited thinking I finally going to use it - but guess what? It was totally dried up .... So whats a woman to do ?
Well I have flour at home and water - this is much cheaper - so here is the recipe:
2 T flour (T = stands for tablespoon)
1 T water
1/2 t white acrylic paint - mix (t = teaspoon)
Here is my stencil - made out of one of those cards that I get for donating money.... I use them for many things - they are great for stencils, shims, etc...
Smear the paste over it - just as Danielle showed you, but I did not use a credit card - a thin acrylic block works like a charm..
Lift the stencil off
This was white on Kraft. But then I put some drops of re-inker liquid in the paste and smeared it onto white card stock:
I went to Yoga and let the mess dry....
And that's my finished card - maybe I'll use the Kraft card next time
I let you know how it hold up - so far it feels velvety and it is pliable - I was worried it would chip off - we see how it goes....if it works I'll never ever will buy embossing paste again....
All supplies by Papertrey (except the flowers and the ribbon)... Its awfully late, gotta go......Thanks for stepping by!
