Stencils, Embossing Paste and Glitter OH MY!!!

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a couple projects I have been working on for Gina at Gina Marie Designs. 

Gina has come with a new stencil line and let me tell you, I LOVE THEM. The stencils are 6" x 6" and strong plastic. I love the styles and enjoyed working with them. Out of the four stencils received I have one that I am going to show you today, another I will have later today for you. 

First I taped the Chic Style stencil down on my paper. For my project I used Recollections 110 lb card stock.

Used Barn Door colored Distress Ink and tinted my Ranger Embossing Paste. I really like the color it created. 

The next step was to removed the stencil and allow the page to dry for a few hours. 

Once the page dried I added Ranger Clear Glitter Embossing Powder and put my heat gun to it to dry. 

I cut the panel down to 4.25" x 5.5" and cut a piece of acetate the same size. Using Stazon ink in White and again in Black I stamped the Dandelion from Joy Clairs Spring Flowers stamp set, and used foam dots to attach the Gina Marie Ballerina Dancer Dies that I cut out of Coral and White.

 I then decided to use Gina's Wonky Stitches frame die to cut a frame to finish the design off.

I have to say, I am not sure how it happened but I LOVE the way that the embossing paste gave off an Ombre' look even though it started out all the same.
