Over to you Anushree
Hi everyone,
I am Anushree Vaish. Today I am really very excited to share this Guest Designer post for Rainbow Craftykari Blog. Thanks team for believing in me and giving me this awesome opportunity under Teaching and Learning program.

Lets get started, I have tried making this post detailed, informative and at the same time fun to try new tricks with same products. In this post I am using various stencils and Modelling paste in three different ways to create backgrounds for the cards on white cardstock.

 


My first background: I have used Crafter's Workshop Stencil Harlequinn, Modelling paste and Ranger Embossing powders to create this one (You can use any embossing powder of your choice). I have placed white cardstock below the stencil and used paper tape to fix it to my craft mat, this fixing is important as we don’t want the stencil to move while applying modelling paste to it. Once all set with fixing, I started applying modelling paste smoothly with the help of my painting knife, you can also use an old credit card/plastic card for smooth effect.





Once done with application of modelling paste, remove the tapes and stencil from the cardstock, now before it dries I have sprinkled gold embossing powder on some areas and dust off the extras, on the remaining areas of stenciled part I sprinkled pearl embossing powder, again dusting off extras as shown in pics. Now I have heat embossed the whole area with the help of my heat tool.




Awesome results,After this embossing powder melts along with modelling paste,the texture we get it super..its much thicker effect than using embossing powder with watermark ink.now I will start creating card with this background.I have used tacky glue (you can use any pva glue) to attach this background with base cardsheet. I have used vellum sheet and used same gold embossing powder now with watermark ink to create the sentiment. The final card will show in the end, till then keep reading.




Second background: This time I have mixed white acrylic color with modelling paste and applied over the stencil. Once the paste is dried, I have distressed the cardstock using three different colors.

 

 


Again I have used vellum sheet and hand cut the scalloped shape, This time for the sentiment I have used a die cut. Attached two same die cut to give volume to it.


Modelling paste generally dries off white color,this mixing of white acrylic has really enhanced the look of distressed portion as well. Stay tuned for how I have attached all these together, before that lets quickly see the third background as well.
Third background: With this one I have mixed distress ink with the modelling paste to make coloured modelling paste. after application of modelling paste, let it dry at room temperature. Modelling paste dries very fast.




The color looks really vibrant and beautiful, now for this card I have stamped the sentiment on white cardstock separately and fussy cut it. Also used few metal embellishments, made these flowers with die cuts and old novel pages after distressing them. Also I have used glossy accents to attach all this.

 

Now time to reveal my three beauties.
