Dreamweaver/Paper Therapy Challenge-Stocking Surprise

 The Dreamweaver Stencil's Design Team in conjunction with our own Wendy Jordan's blog, "Paper Therapy", is challenging all of you to break out your Dreamweaver stencils and get creative. Post your own fun project on the Paper Therapy site and you could have the opportunity of winning FIVE FREE STENCILS! For more info, check out the Paper Therapy blog. For more inspiration, check out the rest of the design team listed at right. Here is mine:
Sometimes you just come up with a clever idea and this was one of mine. I love this "Long Stocking" stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils, and I wanted to experiment with paste-stenciling on velveteen paper. I was quite happy with the result, but then decided it needed something else...maybe a sentiment? Hmmm. Where would I put it? Not much room. Bing! (light bulb going on overhead)...I had it! What if I made a long skinny tag that could slide in and out of the stocking, 'cuz hey, aren't stockings supposed to have surprises? Fortunately, Dreamweaver also had this long sentiment that fit perfectly inside. The background of the card was ink-stenciled using Versamark ink with the "Diamonds" stencil. Some fun retro-inspired ribbon and tiny pompoms were added for whimsy. Yep. The mojo was definitely with me on this day!

Awesome card! Love the embossed stocking and the sentiment inside...very clever! I've never heard of embossing it like molding paste? Do you heat set it like embossing powder? I looked up the product, but didn't see any info.
