My background started out with a layer of paste through a Crafters Workshop stencil, acrylic was painted over that in turquoise and green with a print from one of the ephemera packs glued on with gel medium.
I wanted to create a resist with my UTEE so I used a stippling brush to add the perfect medium through a Prima stencil.
I added the UTEE and melted the powder.
On the other side of the page I used my clear ink pad to swipe over the raised portion of my texture and added powder. My ink pad skimmed over the surface so I was able to just add powder to the very tops of my texture adding to it further.
I then swiped over the entire page with a Distress stain in Wild Honey which stained most of the page but left where I'd added the embossing powder. The effect reminded me a bit of a grungy wall.
Here I also cut a star using a Sizzix die then dry embossed it. I wiped my ink pad over the top to catch the raised areas and heat embossed again. I stained it with the Distress stain wiping off the excess from the embossing.
Here's a closer look at all of the embossing together. The title was cut from a magazine and the border top and bottom was cut from Glitz Design Yours Truly Ephemera.
See you soon
