I started with a Ranger manila tag that measures 3" by 6" and stamped an image from Dyan Reaveley's collection called "Strength". I stamped a mask on a piece of scratch paper at the same time using the same stamp.
This is when the fun begins. I placed the Sea Foam stencil over the tag and used a palette knife to apply the CM Green paste onto most of the tag. When I had applied an ample coating of the paste, I lifted the stencil straight up so I wouldn't smear it and discarded the masking piece. To maximize the texture I poured Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel powder onto the paste and melted it with my heat gun. Now I have texture similar to cloisonne!
You can see how the light plays off of the iridescence of the paste but now I'm going to add more color. I colored Metallic Gelatos all over the back ground.
Thanks for stopping by today. I am having a lot of fun playing with this technique this week as I am pretty much snowed in! Join me on Friday if you have time, I'll be sharing another stenciling project for Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge. I hope to see you then. Hugs ~ Renee xx
