{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Puts the Spotlight on Bold Florals


Hi, Cornelia here today playing with the Bold Florals stencil, embossing paste and microbeads. Here is my card:



I masked off one of the blossoms with washi tape


and sponged with distress inks



Next, I smeared clear drying embossing paste over it.


I lifted the stencil off - got a little smudge on there - I covered it up later....


I sprinkled microbeads on it. You can see it better in the close-up.



I added some stamped leaves from the set VIGNETTE: Eclectic Florals


I heat embossed the sentiment onto 3 different colored pieces of card stock, sewed them on, and added little pearls to the center of the blossom.


Hope you liked this and perhaps will give it a try - those microbeads look amazing in real life!

  3. Wow, Cornelia...your bloom has incredible impact with the colours and the beads! Stunning! Do the beads just adhere on their own to the embossing paste? You've definitely got me intrigued...
