"Hear You Have A Bug"...cute idea Nina.
The Molten Magic technique is quite simple. You can use any of the glossy embossing pastes and Nina used the Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP).
Start by taping off all of the edges of the stencil when you paste-emboss. This ensures that none of the paste will go under of off the edges of the stencil. I like to impress people that the first piece of tape that you put down should be your "hinge" and that way your stencil won't smear the image as you remove the tape.
When I paste a very large stencil I like to use the paste spreader but I use the regular palette knife to pull the paste out of the jar.
The Metallic F/X powders are kept handy and after the stencil is removed the "bug is sprinkled with two or three different colors of these mica powders.You can apply them with a stencil brush for a fine sprinkling or if you want to be more generous you can use a small scoop to add the colors. Work quickly because the paste needs to be wet for the powders to attach. Next tap off the excess powders. Now take a heat gun that heats very hot and start by heating the image underneath and then on top of the image. The thinner you have pasted the smaller the bubbles. If the paste-embossing is very thick your bubble may need to be tapped down with your fingers once it has cooled a bit. This will keep them from breaking or getting brittle.
Some of the new Dreamweaver die cut leaves (DD003) were cut out of crumpled brown paper and added as an embellishment to the creation on the left side of the card. Then the "bug" was cut out and added as well. It looks like some type of beetle that you would find amongst the leaves of the ground in a forest.
Such a fun card: Here is the final result!
