Colouring Embossing Paste

Hi everyone and thank you for your kind comments on my recent posts. They are always very much appreciated. As promised yesterday, I have just uploaded a NEW VIDEO HERE about colouring and using embossing paste in response to a couple of questions received recently. It will take you through the processes used for creating the background on this card;


I hope you find this useful and, if you haven't yet indulged in the joys of using/colouring embossing paste, you are encouraged to give it a whirl.
Have a great weekend and take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

I really enjoyed your video and all the useful tips. It is nice to actually see the process, and I happen to have that mask, so that made it even better. Your color combination is unusual and I really like it. The orange colors really pop on that gray blue background. Love this card.

Loved the video Jenny. I too use washi tape for the keeping it down process.

Wish I hadn't seen the stencil because it is now on my wish list.

Beautiful make.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x

Good morning Jenny,
Another stunning card, I love the background and the stunning flowers.
Although I LOVE everything you do, I have said it is not "my" style. I might just be persuaded to have a go at the background.
Have a fantastic weekend and thank you for sharing your incredible talent.
Hugs

Jenny....I wanted to take a second to thank you so much for your comments you've left on my blog; especially the one for my last Simon Says Stamp post. I just got back from CHA and an extended trip visiting my brother in California last night. I have to admit...I am ashamed of myself for not having your name on my blog roll before now. I actually thought it was. :) I love your cards. They are always so original and your workmanship is fabulous. So please accept my apologies that you have not been on my blog roll. That has been changed. :) <3 Candy

Hi Jenny, I nearly missed this! Thank You so much for such a great video how to. This background is lovely, I will definitly have a go at colouring the embossing paste, I love the way you kept the border white and it blended in with the colour beautifully.

Stunning card Jenny and terrific video - it was a real pleasure to watch and learn. You are most professional. I noticed another lady saying she had experienced sound issues, just for feedback though I had no probs with hearing / sound. It is a beautiful stencil, it reminds me of my very first stencil (TCW mini damask that I regret I was too heavy handed with whilst cleaning) so I may purchse this one. Nicola x
