This is my first attempt with embossing paste. I used the stampin' pastels with the classy brass template, the applies the paste. The only color that didn't come through was the black in the bee, so I used a sharpie on the dry embossing paste.

Here is a set of instructions and the site is listed at the end. I used light modeling paste (from Michaels in the acrylic paints section I think) instead of spackle or embossing paste, and used the chalks first with the stencil then added the paste. The color pulls up through the paste. It's cool.
Spackle Cards Colored With Chalks
You will need a brass template or a plastic stencil and the light weight spackle. (It feels as if the container is empty when you buy it. Regular spackle is too heavy for card stock.)
1. Place your template on top of your cardstock. Use some kind of spreader (I use a palette knife) and spread an even layer over the entire opening being sure to fill in any gaps.
2. Once it if filled in, smooth off top to make sure the spackle is even. Then lift the template straight up and voila! you have a wonderful raised image on your cardstock.
3. It has to dry, either naturally or carefully with heat gun. Once dry, color gently with your chalks. NOTE: You can also mix a bit of spackle with ink from reinkers and get a colored spackle to apply to card stock.
