Riviera Repeat with Gemma

Stencils and background stamps are great for creating repeat pattern backgrounds, which is the theme of this months WOW Embossing Facebook challenge.

On my card today, I used the fabulous Riviera trio with the Triangles stencil from Pretty Pink Posh.

Taping down the stencil to a piece of white card, I inked over it with the WOW clear embossing ink. I removed the stencil, then poured over the embossing powders in lines. 

Do this one colour at a time, funnelling back in the leftover powder into the jar before moving on to the next powder. For the last powder, cover the panel to catch any areas that have been missed.

The Riviera trios have larger white and black embossing pieces in, so it's best to use the heat tool underneath the panel so they melt.

Once the panel was embossed, I trimmed it down and adhered to a white card base.

For my sentiment, I die cut the Pretty Pink Posh Happy Birthday to You die from white card twice and added a top layer of blue pearlescent card to create a stacked greeting.

With a busy background, it can help to use some vellum under a sentiment to help it show up. I adhered the die cut word to a vellum circle, then added this to my card base. Some dots of liquid glue behind where the sentiment sits helps to hide the adhesive.

I hope you'll join in with the WOW Embossing Facebook challenge and share your projects with repeating patterns.

Have a lovely day,

  1. A pretty all over stencilled pattern using these beautiful embossing powders Gemma, and a great idea to use a piece of vellum under the die cut sentiment to make it stand out against the background. x
