You Make me Smile - Embossing Paste and Masks - #CI12

Welcome back everyone 😊

Today I have been playing with my embossing paste and mixing it with some pretty colours from the Colour Inkspiration Challenge #CI12 
Please click the picture to see the colour challenge for yourself.
We have a range of colours to choose from this week

No automatic alt text available.

Whisper White, Night Of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, Smoky Slate and Peekaboo Peach.

I chose to use Elegant Eggplant, Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White.

Here are my cards. I actually made two!

You Make Me Smile

using Eastern Medallions

My card base is Flirty Flamingo and my card front is whisper white. I used a layer of silver foil to add extra interest.
For the card above I used the Eastern Medallions thinlits to make masks with acetate.
I used my ink pads sponging onto clear blocks then added a dollop of Embossing Paste to each block. Mixing each colour I applied it to the mask and paper underneath. I slightly overlapped each colour, this mixed the colours slightly to give a different shade or completely different colour.
After all of the embossing paste was dry I cut a medallion in vellum. I then went searching for my stitched shapes thinlits....Oh No! I couldn't find them...
I kept looking and ended up cleaning my whole craft room while trying to find them 😲 all to no avail. I have lost them 😢
So I used the layering circle thinlits instead for my sentiment.

You Make Me Smile

using the Pattern Part Decorative Masks

For the larger medallion I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. My card base for this card is Elegant Eggplant with Whisper White for the card front.
I used the left over embossing past to create this card and even then I still had a little left over, so I made one more card base. But unfortunately I didn't get time to finish that card. Hopefully later 😊
I added the3 elegant eggplant as a layer underneath the vellum for this card as the vellum just wasn't enough.
The sentiment for both cards is from the Eastern Palace stamp set.

Both Cards together

I finished the large medallion card by adding the enamel shapes in Elegant Eggplant
Isn't this just gorgeous!?! For the smaller medallion card I used the metallic enamel shapes. These shapes are such an easy way to pimp out a card. Don't you think

And another shot of them together
