Embossing Paste Goodness

I love playing with embossing paste.
 It can make for such a dramatic background.  I used this piece to create a card around the Freshly Made sketch.  
 I started out with a piece of watercolor paper.  I sprayed it with some Tattered Angels Chalkboard spray in Valencia.  That is such a neat color because it has a metallic gold undertone.  I didn't cover the entire paper.  When that was dry, I added white embossing paste through a Tim Hotlz stencil.  The "hello" is a die from Mama Elephant and the butterfly is by Recollections/Michaels.  
Here is the Freshly Made Sketch.
Plus it fits the Time Out challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
