The Ranger Blog  (this will go live later in the day)

Here is my creation for today's hop and the June Pinterest challenge. You will find my Pinspiration piece at the end of my post. Meanwhile, a few steps in the process...

The May Arts canvas ribbon was perfect to use the matte black paste (DMBP) on!






I mixed the Dreamweaver Translucent Embossing Paste (DEPT) with the dry Stickles Glitter from Ranger.





Southwest background stencil (LJ807)
Here is a picture of what it looks like when it is pasted on the Southwest background stencil (LJ807). I loved how it looked holographic on the dark purple cardstock. I was surprised that the tangerine color that you see above looked turquoise on the purple paper. I actually mixed a Lime Green mixture as well and pasted them at the same time. To see more how this is done you can learn about paste-embossing two pastes at the same time in my book on Embossing Paste techniques. It is called New Dimensions in Cardmaking (Book-4) and the project technique is called "sludge paste"...catchy name, huh?



The lizard stencil (LL2004) was paste embossed with Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP) and then the Green and Lime Green dry Stickles were sprinkled on top of the paste. I like using glossy pastes with this technique, as the glossies are stickier and tend to hold glitter and embossing powders better than the matte pastes. When the lizard was dry I used a craft knife and scraped the edges so he had a black outline.


And here is my Pinterest inspiration. Isn't he a colorful one? Click HERE for more info.
