More Embossing for SSS Wednesday Challenge

I entered a card on the first day of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (to see it click here) and now I have another one for the challenge before it closes.

This time I used a different kind of embossing - namely embossing paste. To be more precise I used Heavy gloss gel which, according to Loll you can use instead of translucent embossing paste. I had bought the gel before my trip and finally got around to playing with it. And it was fun! I used a NBUS stencil from Memory Box and made a masculine card which to me means no embellishments.


Hope you like it! I think this glossy gel/transparent embossing paste gives a nice effect.

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Oh yes...this is one striking, tall, dark and handsome manly card indeed! The translucent paste/gel creates quite the impressive effect, and the dp speech bubbles are a perfect pairing. Fabulous and cool!! You know, this fits into the Inkspirational Challenge where the word prompt is "splash"...your shimmery background does have a 'water-reflective' appearance...
