AAA cards Challenge #59: embossing

AAA cards Challenge #59: embossing

For my card I used translucent embossing paste to give dimension to the bubbles.

I stamped my image and sentiment with My Favorite things black licorice. I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers,
I used the falling snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp upside down, so now it is a rising bubbles stencil.
I inked some tumbled glass  from Distress ink through it and then I applied Wendi Vecchi translucent embossing paste through the stencil.
Although I always wash my stencils there was some red left and it reactivated as I applied the embossing paste, giving some of the bubbles red's not everywhere or too overpowering, so I'm ok with it..just ;-)

The image is from Ranger Dylusions- clearly under the sea and the sentiment is from Joy! Crafts - seashore.
I worked on Neenah solar white for the markers and adhered it all with the ATG gun to my cardbase.

  1. Love this Maaike! Such a clever idea to turn the snow fall into bubbles and the subtle touch from the clear embossing really adds to the design :)

  2. Great card! You're so clever to use the snow stencil that way. Thnaks for the inspiration.

  3. So cute! Love the happy accident from your stencil bleeding red. It gives is whimsical element.

  4. Adorable!! I have been seeing more and more stencils being used in blogland!! Your wonderful card makes me wanna shop!! : )


  5. I love this card. Brilliant idea to turn the snow stencil upside down for bubbles. The embossing paste is the perfect medium for them. I love the sentiment as well. Thanks for linking up and playing with us at AAA Cards.
