See the card on the left? The Yesterday Today Tomorrow one? I created that raised effect with modelling paste! Here is what you will need to create your own fun three dimensional element. Modeling Paste, a pallette knife, paper and a stencil or template.
Simply lay your stencil over your paper. If you are working with a large stencil you may want a bit of repositionable adhesive to hold it still, but for this small size I was able to hold it still myself. Start applying the paste on the open areas of the stencil.
Decide how much of the image you want to include. I decided to used the entire thing, but I could have easily left off the border if I chose to. Use a thick covering like frosting a cookie. I dont mind a little texture in the strokes, but I like to make sure there is full coverage.
And let dry! I trimmed around my card and adhered to my layout. Just look at that dimension and texture!
