Paste over Dye Challenge


I haven't managed to play along with a challenge on the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group in a long time so it's been extra nice to fit this one in.  The current challenge is to use Studio 490 embossing paste over paper that has been treated with inks/sprays and the challenge is inspired by THIS blog post on Britta Swiderski's blog.  

I sprayed a page in one of my journals with Dylusion sprays in bubblegum pink, funky fuchsia and cherry pie and dried it.  Next I used the Studio 490 heart stencil to add gold metallic paste and let it dry. Then I layed Wendy's brick stencil on and sprayed Dylusions white linen through it, moved it and resprayed so there were three areas of bricks, cleaned my stencil and dried the page.  I started using a Stabilo pencil for shading (bottom right side of heart) but then switched to chalk pastels and some glittery craft chalks.  Used another of Wendy's stencils to add the word Fragile with black embossing paste and let it dry.  Stamped the flourishes (Studio 490) along the bottom and in the upper left with Archival Ink jet black.  Stamped the flowers (Studio 490) along the bottom with jet black.  Added white doodling on flowers and black doodle lines on the borders where there wasn't any stamping.  Stamped the hanging hearts (a Dylusions stamp) with Distress Ink pumice stone.  Added brushed pewter Distress Stain splatters using the detail water brush and let it dry.  Finished it off by adding the white dots and doodles in along the border.
