This was my first time trying embossing paste. I'll confess that I've had a jar of it sitting in my craft cupboard for many, many months and have never used it! So, when I opened it up I felt like a kid getting ready to make mud pies. And that's exactly what I did! Let me explain... I don't have any re-inkers but I do have some Tim Holtz distress bottles with the sponge on top. You know, the kind you squeeze and a little bit comes out on your craft mat? Well, I squoze and squoze that bottle and no ink was dropping onto my craft mat. So I squoze harder and yep! The top popped right off the bottle spilling almost the entire bottle onto my craft mat and everywhere else! I was about ready to call it quits and skip the challenge but decided to give it one more try, this time being very careful how hard I squeezed the bottle.
Here's my completed card:
Not the best card on the block but it will have to suffice. I'm not so sure I'm going to jump back in to this technique any time soon. I might just keep admiring other peoples creations using embossing paste. Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
