Papertrey Make it Monday - Cover plate stencils and embossing paste

This week's Make it Monday is all about using a cover plate as a stencil for embossing paste.  I love this technique!  The talented Laurie showed us her beautiful creation with transluscent embossing paste and although I have that, I decided to use pearlescent instead.  It has a gorgeous shimmer to it that I just love ...
I used a heart cover plate and washi taped off one row to use with the Dreamweaver pearlescent embossing paste.  I laid it on thick and then smoothed it out as much as possible.  I removed the stencil and let the paste dry.  I actually wrote some report cards while waiting ... might as well make use of my time! :)  Deadlines and all!
I added a sentiment from Luxe Letterpress using Fresh steel blue ink and some Mini Blooms in mint ink at the top and bottom.
I added some Wink of Stella clear on the flowers, cut down the white card panel (Recollections 110lb white) and added it to a PTI kraft base.  Easy peasy!
