I experimented with the Square Tile stencil, Nuance and Nuvo Glimmer embossing paste. I used a die to cut a 4” square piece of white, mixed media paper. Then I cut it in half diagonally. Since I planned to use embossing paste on the paper, I decided to cut it in half before applying the paste, rather than after it dried. I wasn’t sure if it would cut smoothly after the paste dried.)
I taped the triangle to the back of the stencil then applied some sparkly embossing paste, removed the stencil and set it aside to dry. I immediately washed the stenciling paste off the stencil.
After the paste dried, I tapped small amounts of aquamarine, turquoise and cerulean blue Nuance onto a craft sheet and sprayed lightly with water to create “paint”. I spritzed the paper very lightly, then used a paint brush to pick up each of the colors and drop it onto the card, between the stenciled areas.
I did this until the entire piece was covered.
I sprayed another layer of color, dried and then added a third layer of color.
I loved the final result and how the blues and purple blended together. The color changes when I photograph it - the purples show through a lot in real life and you will see that on some of the other photos.
I cut the Distress Oxide piece to 4” x 5 ¼” and the attached the stenciled triangle. I trimmed the ends of the triangle even with the sides of the cardstock, then adhered to a piece of Glamour Green cardstock and then adhered it to an A2 card. I adhered a piece of fun foam to the back of the sentiment circle, then adhered to the front of the card. I added a few gems for a bit more sparkle.
By the way, this sentiment comes in two additional versions – Circle of Friends 1 which you can find here and Circle of Friends 2 which you can find here.
