Embossed Grunge Tree

My design today features Sheena's Grunge Tree stencil.  I just love this tree! There are seven fabulous stencils in the release! It's coming soon!

 The moon is a mask made from a circle die cut.  I sponged in color for the sky, working in a horizontal motion from the outside in, leaving some white spaces. The stencil was taped in place with a low tack tape and then the embossing paste was applied. After the paste dried, I put the stencil back over it and dabbed in color.

NOTEs: (1) when using embossing paste, clean your stencil right away - I have a pan of water next to my creative space. (2) I used one side of tape as a hinge so I could check the color without losing my placement. (3) be sure to allow the paste to dry completely before placing the stencil back over.
