(see also Velvet Glitter Butterflies using the same technique, here)
I'm in love with Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter, and all the techniques which look so pretty with it, that I've been making more for make 'n takes.
So where's the torment?
Ugh! Photographing glitter and embossing powder is pure torture! LOL
Painting with Watercolors has never been easier!
- use the same color cardstock in the die cuts,
- paint a bit of matching watercolors on them, and
- coat with embossing powders.
Winter White Cosmic embossing powder offers a chance to DISTRESS with sparkling, creamy EP. (on the flower petals). The cardstock color peeks through the distressed EP, but is still slightly "icy" in appearance.
The Memory Box Fuchsia Sprig and Cheery Lynn Tropical Flourish are both cut from pink cardstock, watercolored a bit, and then coated with VersaMark ink and creamy, pearly SNS Opaline Cosmic Embossing Powder. (The Cosmic line is really quite magical). Creamy - Pearly - So Soft looking!
Here is a close up of the distressed flower petals, the now-pearly flower center, and the pearly flourish.
The Opaline Cosmic EP is gorgeous - one of my favorites. Used on the el-cheapo brad (flower center), it now appears to match the pink pearl swirls.
Embossing Powders can completely change the look of ordinary die cuts and papers.
The cheapest, ugliest cardstock in your stash can be transformed into beautiful designer style paper.
A simple sentiment finishes the card.
