Here's another attempt at using paint in an embossing folder for the Papertrey Make it Monday Stamp Paint Technique. Recently at work, a gal that provides in-home care for seniors brought in a huge box of stamping supplies from one of her clients who recently decided to get rid of ALL of her hobby supplies. The box mostly consisted of embossing powders and glitter. Well, I manage about 32 staff at a federally funded preschool center. It's pretty difficult for 3-4 year old children do heat embossing, AND I am the designated card-maker for staff celebrations (birthdays, weddings, etc.), SO, many staff agreed that I should get first pick of the embossing powders since many of them would get thrown out (the glittery ones can likely still be used as glitter). To my surprise, I ended up bring home 82 jars of embossing powder...and only 3 are duplicate colors (white...a girl can never have too much white embossing powder)! One of the colors is sheer gold. It can be seen on my card below. It's very pretty and bright.
On a side note, I started to think about what my children/grandchildren would do with all my crafting supplies when I'm too old or fragile to use them? Hopefully they will use them, but the way things are going, my supplies will be outdated and new styles, techniques and products will replace them. So I guess I better just try to use them all up...even those new 82 jars of embossing powders *smile*!
