Embossed Spring Bird

Hi,

I confess I finally gave up on making homemade embossing paste, they don't keep very well!  :(
So I got myself a light weight embossing paste and am experimenting with it.  I used two Magenta stencils (TM44, TM51) and distressing ink to make this 6 x 7 card.


I will enter it to the March Magenta Challenge - Nature,

and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Spring Pinterest Inspiration Challenge,

and I am playing along Kathy's 30 Day Colouring Challenge,


Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you a lovely day!!

Love this. I have tried to colour on embossed and thrown away each time totally disgusted with my end result. Yours is beautiful

This is so soft and pretty Cindy. You've achieved a fantastic result with inking the paste - not easily done at all. Gorgeous card. Nicola x
