MIM#201 Embossing paste and cover plate stencils

I almost didn't join in this week, as I don't own any embossing paste.  Then  I saw K and R Designs post about using stickles and glossy accents with a stencil.  I have those things, plus pearl accents paint, so I gave it a try using my pearl accents paint.  I only used it on a tag using the circles cover plate.  It turned out ok.  I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process and made the pearl paint crack a little, but since I covered up most of the tag with baby accents, it looks fine.  It all turned out better than I hoped, but it used a lot of pearl paint.  I can't invest in new items right now, so I may have to use glossy accents or stickles glitter glue next time.  Definitely not a technique I would normally try.

All supplies PTI except the embossing folder for the background on the card base layer and the baker's twine.
