The other technique I experimented with was the Embossing Paste Resist. For this technique I used translucent paste on white card stock and then colored over with distress inks in mowed lawn, peacock feathers, and salty ocean. The embossing paste gives a nice glossy finish and raised texture to the card front. I used the Julie Nutting Cling Stamp Set Merci from Prima for the sentiment "Merci Beaucoup." With all the talk of the mainland having white outs from snow I thought this was a nice bright and cheery card.
The next card used silver embossing paste to add raised color effect to the card front. I looking forward to exploring adding colorants to white paste in the future- but I didn't have those supplies today.
The clocks were then colored with shades of pink distress ink and frayed burlap and then spritz and flicked with water.
