Forever & Always

Hi there ~
Just a quick post today ~ I created another card for this week’s challenges:
Addicted to CAS - Code Word is ‘One Layer Card’
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge - ‘Clean and Simple’
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - ‘Anything Goes’ with a focus on using exclusive SSS products 

This is my very first attempt at using Wendy Vecchi’s Embossing Paste. I die cut a bunch of hearts from my SSS dies using a piece of clear acetate, taped it down with Washi and applied the paste...easy-peasy for sure, and I love the dimension! I’m sure I’ll be using this paste again very soon!

Here is a close up of the texture from the embossing paste:

I hope everyone is having a great day...Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by ~

Ink: Versamark; Hero Arts - Unicorn Pigment Ink

So pretty, Barb! Haven't tried the "paste" technique yet but after seeing your soft effect, I may just have to try it :)
