As a die-hard texture freak, stencils and texture paste top my list of ways to get quick and beautiful dimension to my cards and tags . . .
Depending on the thickness of application, most stencil pastes dry in about 10 minutes, so it's a simple matter to do the stenciling first, then work on other aspects of the layout while waiting for the paste to dry.
Come to think of it, I haven't stenciled with embossing paste in awhile . . . trust me, that's about to change!
