Right . . . I managed to get card number two finished, just before the last of the daylight disappeared! I had chosen to try Jocelyn Olson's 'Embossing Paste' technique, which calls for two layers of embossing, one on top of the other, with two different stencils.
First, I added a bit of watercolour to both corners of the card using cheap watercolours and had to let that dry. Next, I took the Simon Says Stamp, 'Dots and Lines' stencil and embossed the first layer onto the background, then had to let that dry.
Once dry, I took the Hero Arts, 'Leaf and Flourish' stencil and just embossed part of the design in each coloured corner and, you guessed it, had to leave that to dry . . . are you beginning to see, why I had to post these separately and nearly lost the light?
Once that was dry, I cut two leaf stems (sorry, can't remember who they are by) out of vellum and stuck one in each corner.
I finished the whole thing off with another My Favorite Things, 'Happy' die and the Altenew, Label Love, stamp set - only using the birthday part this time - finishing with a sprinkle of sequins.
Thank you again for taking the time to stop by and for leaving messages, I appreciate you all and try to reciprocate where possible. Have a great evening/ day. Hazel xx
