Embossing Powders &  Stencils by April Williams

Supplies needed:

  1. white or cream card stock
  2. stencils brass or plastic -- I used plastic
  3. ink sprays
  4. Versa Mark ink pad
  5. sponge
  6. glittery embossing powders
  7. water spritzer
  8. paper towel
  9. embossing buddy
  10. heat tool

Spray your card stock with several colors.

Spritz some water over the colors to blend a little more.

Blot card stock with a paper towel, lay a stencil over the card stock and spray a color over the stencil. I used a white pearl on this one to give a subtle look.

Continue to lay stencils over the card stock and spray different colors, some dark and some light.

Now use the embossing buddy to swipe over the card stock. this will  keep the embossing powder from sticking where you do not want it!

Now lay a stencil over your background and sponge Versa Mark ink over the openings of the stencil.

Add embossing powder and heat with a heat tool.

Keep doing this as much or as little as you want. Now you have a neat and shimmery background.

Here are some others I made. I chose the last one to use on my card above.
