Inspiration Journal May Challenge – Pasted!

Yep, the May challenge over at Inspiration Journal is in full swing and you can join in for a chance to win $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium! The theme this month is Pasted! and we want to see what you can do with some sort of embossing paste incorporated into your project. I made a Mother's Day card for mine:

Ever since I saw Shelly Hickox's super cool double embossing technique she used for her Dog Tag necklace, I've wanted to try it out. (See her post for complete instructions.) She used aluminum flashing as the base for her pendant. I covered a piece of heavy cardstock with a foil sheet for my "metal" substrate. I used various Wendy Vecchi blue embossing powders as my base embossed layer and white embossing powder over the stenciled Texture Paste. I wanted to create more of a "vintage china" feel since this was a card for my Grandma. She isn't into grunge lol. Here's a detail of the embossing part:

Be sure to go and check out the Pasted! challenge. There are already some pretty snazzy entries and I think you'll be inspired! Be sure to join in too. =)
