Added homemade white embossing paste through stencil on clear vellum. Once dry, smooched through colorburst. Mopped up the rest of the color with white cs that became base. Flattened base and vellum by running through laminator. Attached vellum to base by running through xyron. Added stamped and fussy cut holly leaves to rest on top of Silhouette cut greenery and sentiment. The berries are punched, shaped then glued on from cs. Added gel pen dots in white on green leaves.
Tip: Heck ya the arrowroot works for embossing paste. Dries fast, cleans like a breeze and took the color without loosing shape or melting. Plus no smell (except now I am thinking about adding essential oil, maybe lavender). Recipe: 1/4 c. arrowroot, 2 t. acrylic white paint, 2 t. white glue and enough water to make paste. Next question, will it take to be colored and what with: water colors, reinkers or colorburst?
