Muse #82

Muse


Wow I haven't played Muse in quite some time, but the wheels started turning as soon as I saw Bobby's stunning card for her Guest Design! I have been playing quite a bit lately with embossing paste and I finally got some white that I used  for the challenge! I have only used translucent in the past. Once again I coloured my embossing paste with Distress Inks. I am no expert with embossing paste, just simply a student. I learn each time a open the jar. I remember things from past experiences and make mental notes with the new use.

I am so in love with the texture of embossing paste. Enough that I am getting over the mess! That is big for me!

This is a good photos to show the texture and dimension of the card.

I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Anything Goes challenge and to Keep it Simple challenge #47 ombre. Thanks Amy T for directing me to this challenge!

Your post made me smile as I have avoided the EP because I think the mess would freak me out! Although I love seeing what others have created with it and your card today is just gorgeous, the texture and dimension is just perfect. Sorry I haven't been to see you for a while and I hope you are well x

Stunning card, Tracey - and cheering how wonderfully skillful you are with embossing paste. I'm excited to welcome some into my collection. I found a new product distributor - in Edmonton!! - and I'm aiming to visit her on the weekend. EP is on the list. Your card is a delightful take on Bobby's!
