VIDEO: Using Embossing Powder With Stencils

VIDEO: Mixed Media Technique - Using Embossing Powders With Stencils by Kim Dellow

 

I’m back today with a technique for using embossing powder with stencils. But I am not just using one embossing powder, oh no, that would be too easy! I am going to use three and I’ve got the whole process for you in my video today. It is a great technique for your mixed media, art journaling and even your card making too so have fun trying out this embossing powder with stencils technique!

Now, I’m using some lovely free gifts that I got from magazines for my make today. So hopefully this will give you some ideas for how to use them if you have them, or a heads-up if you haven’t and you want to get them! There might also be a shameless plug for one of my recent articles too! Oops!

I’m using the Dragonfly Dreams Die and Stamp set from Simply Cards and Papercraft Issue 171 and the Hexagon Stencil from Apple Blossom Magazine and kit issue 2 and you can find both of these over at Craft Stash (they ship worldwide!) and I’ve put direct links to each of the magazines in the supplies list below.

Remember, there are close-up pictures of the project at the bottom of this post!

    Hi again
    these three colours work well together and look really elegant me thinks.
    And no, I would not add any text and leave it as it is.
    Now going to the next video.

      Hiya Rena 🙂
      I’m glad you like it and thank you for the suggestion too. I’m with you, I still haven’t added any words but it has been really interesting hearing people’s suggestions and I am thinking of using them on other projects if it feels right. I’m never good with the word part, so I do tend to leave them word-free!

    Hi there 🙂
    well… me thinks it would be too much if you put any text in. There is already text on these strips. That is enough my humble opinion. I rarely use words on pictures, but that is just personal taste.
    Maybe you could write something on ie acetate and lay over it to see if it works. Would be better than ruining the piece.
