Embossing Pastes are fab!

The rather lovely, and beyond generous, Wendy Vecchi drew my name out of a hat and sent me a pot of each of her brand spanking new embossing paste (and a few Blossom Bucket goodies that are, coincidentally very difficult to get in the UK) and I just had to have a go...
I used the white Embossing Paste through Wendy's brickwork stencil - it was genuinely really easy to work with and dried pretty quickly! I sprayed the whole piece with Postbox Red Dylusions Spray and, when dry, sanded it back a little to see what would happen... Embossing Paste seems to take what you throw at it! How great it that? 
Wendy is currently making fabulous snowy scenes by adding Ranger's Rock Candy Glitter to the paste... Looks like a fabulous excuse to carry on experimenting! Huge and heartfelt thanks again Wendy - I LOVE the new pastes!
