Heartfelt Creations Daisies and Card a Day Challenge Guest Designer Stencil card

This month I am a guest designer at Card a day challenge blog as part of the July Stencil Extravaganza.  All of my cards use stencils.  Today's card is an example of heat embossing texture paste.  I used a new Recollections vine stencil and plain white light modeling paste.  I lifted the stencil before I added the embossing powder.  As advised in a video I watched on youtube, I let the background sit for an hour or so before heat setting the embossing powder.  

While the background dried, I used a water brush and Quick Quotes chalking inks to color the Heartfelt Creations flowers.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment with the same embossing powder as the flower outlines.  Then I cut out with a Sizzix label die.

From this angle you can see the texture and pearly green embossing.
