Craft Mojo DT - my first play with stencils & paste

Hello everyone... hope you're enjoying the Easter weekend :o)

I'm here with my Craft Mojo DT card, and I've finally been brave and used my stencils and embossing paste for the first time... I've been itching to use them, I'm just a bit of a wuss with new techniques!


I changed the white embossing paste to pink, by mixing it with Hero Arts Soft Pink... it's really easy to do - just dab the ink pad on a craft mat, add the paste and mix together.  I need a bit of practise in getting a smooth finish, but really had fun with the paste so I'll definitely have another play soon... and the texture is great for adding a bit of interest.

The layout was created using the newly released MFT Blueprints 14 set, which I absolutely love and my favourite Jane's Doodles sentiment stamp too!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

What a pretty feminine card! The die cuts are very nice. You did a great job with the stencil paste and stencil. Playing with stencils is so hot right now. I like what people are doing with them. I didn't realize it was so easy to get the stencil paste colored.
