Paste on Kraft

Paste on Kraft

Hi All!

Hope you’re having a great week! Today, in the spirit of the November Kraft challenge, I am using embossing paste on Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake cardstock. I don’t think I’ve ever colored paste with Copic markers before, but I think it worked pretty well. Here is a close-up:

I like to use black and white on kraft – it makes a very bold card. Enjoy the video!

    What a great idea to colour the embossing paste with Copic Markers. I’d never have thought of that. And it makes a striking card too!

    What a great idea. The COPIC markers went on so easy. I had imagined you scribbling on a block and mixing the paste In, but this was tidy and different. Did it affect the nibs in any way?
    I’m going to try this technique. Loved the card

      Hi Dayse. The nibs are very durable. But still, I was careful to not press too hard. My markers were fine afterwards.

    Really pretty birthday card. I have to pull out my embossing paste. I haven’t used for a while.
    Thanks for the video. Joyce

    I think it’s amazing how well the Copics went on over the embossing paste! I don’t have Copics, but for a similar effect, I just pull out my Distress inks. That works especially well with the Ranger Texture Paste, since it seems a little more opaque. You can mix the ink in to the paste; or apply the paste “naked,” wait for it to dry, and ink blend over it then. I guess the latter method just produces more vivid color, since you’re not “diluting” the ink color with the paste. Anyway, your card is so striking, Darlene! You really do CAS design well. I just can’t manage it most of the time. I’m more of a “kitchen sink” (as in, everything AND the kitchen sink) kind of card maker! LOL But I do admire those who can manage to leave things alone and leave white space. I hope you are having a wonderful day–take care! 🐱 ~ Andrea
