Colored Embossing Paste/Verdigris Christmas Tree Card


In the photo above you can really see how amazing, yet subtle, the Gold Embossing Paste is!  It didn't come that way out of the jar, it started as Pearlescent Embossing Paste. In today's video, I will show you how I used a Gold Delicata Ink pad to give this Embossing Paste a perfect metallic [...]
