Today I have a get well card for you. I'm loving heat embossing on stencilled texture paste at the moment and just had to feature it.
This Hampton Arts stamp is my favourite for a humorous get well card, but I didn't have the sentiment I wanted in my stash so created it on the computer. For the background, I took a piece of card in "surgical gown turquoise" and a Uniko stencil, and applied opaque texture paste through the stencil. While the paste was wet, I sprinkled it with Distress Embossing Powder and heat embossed it. Normally when embossing with distress powder, some of the powder can be brushed off when cool to give a distress effect, but using it on texture paste means the "loose" powder is held in place by the paste once dry, so instead of patches without embossing, the finished effect is patches of a rougher texture. It gives a really interesting tactile finish to the background - perfect for "feeling rough"!
The image is coloured with markers and both that and the sentiment roughly cut out with deckle edged scissors.
