A new AAA Cards challenge


 This AAA Cards challenge is a favorite for me, embossing paste and/or stencils.  
 I had to use both! I colored a piece of watercolor paper with Distress Stains to create a background.  I then used a stencil and some silver Studio 490 Wendy Veechi embossing paste.  That flower is from a set by Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous and the leaves are from a set by Altenew.  After I stamped them with black ink, I added color with Distress Stains. My "hello" is a die from Mama Elephant and that was also colored with Distress Stains. 
I wanted to try to show off that amazing shine in that silver embossing paste.  What a fun way to add some serious bling.
Be sure to check out the other cards at AAA Cards and to also play along this week.
This also fits the Friday Mashup challenge to use stencils.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

What a fantastic contrasting array of elements put together! The flower looks so wonderful against the partially stencilled background! Love it!
