Stencilled mandala with pearl embossing paste and powder.

Hi everyone, have you had a chance to play along with the embossing paste challenge at CAS Stencil yet?
Well, if not, there's still plenty of time and there's lots of new inspiration from the team.
There are also some video tutorials on the challenge blog to help
 with this technique.

I recently purchasd the heart mandala stencil from Simon Says Stamp and was inspired by
Yana Smakula's video on using this stencil with embossing paste and pearl embossing powder.

I spread mother of pearl modellier creme through part of the stencil, then sprinkled on some satin pearl powder onto the wet design. (Remember to put your stencil and tools into water so that the paste doesn't get a chance to dry on them.)

You're supposed to wait for the paste to dry before heat embossing, but I'm afraid I wasn't that patient lol! It bubbled a bit but I think it's still ok.

I diecut the heart from vellum and layered the sentiment diecut up for dimension.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Mix it up card Challenge, I've gone with the anything goes option.

I love all the texture you created with your Mother of Pearl Creme and adding the pearl powder adds such a lovely sparkle to this beautiful Heart Mandala Stencil! Such a pretty CAS design too, Cathy!

Amazing design Cathy! LOVE the embossing paste with pearl finish through your gorgeous heart mandala stencil (now on my wish list!). :) The pearly sheen is fantastic and looks absolutely amazing done on the kraft card stock. Great finishing details with the vellum heart and white die-cut LOVE. xx

I gasped, Cathy ... what a stunner! Fantastic, pearly texture, so precisely done ... the vellum heart allows this awesome panel to truly shine! Sophisticated and so stylish! Hugs, Anita :)

This is just stunning. The pearl shine is so lovely and the gold shows it off. Kraft c/s was perfect for this and the vellum is so soft.
