When I first began thinking about adding texture to a card, I thought of embossing paste. And then when thinking about embossing paste and considering my various masks I had to use with the paste, I couldn't help but think of the paisley mask from the retired Seasonal masks set and how much they look like ghosts When I opened my embossing paste it was dried out, but I was determined to make this work. So, my lovely husband helped me revitalize the paste by adding a few drops of water, stirring vigorously for awhile, and then repeating the process. I had all the other pieces ready to go, but went to bed with the paste still resting, not knowing if the design in my head was going to make it to a card today or not. Well, I woke up this morning to embossing paste ready to make my dream a reality. So, I carefully added it to my card front and left that piece on my desk to dry. Imagine my horror when I entered the room awhile later to find my office trash can had been set directly on top of my card front. It was STUCK TO THE BOTTOM!!!! I managed to carefully dislodge it without too much difficulty. I think it just gives the ghosts character. :) I did add eyes to the ghosts floating across the card front.
