Hi everyone, I've spent the afternoon playing with perfect pearl sprays and infusions.
I love this shell embossing folder and have never used it in this orientation on a card before, I think it works though!
I started out by embossing some 300gsm white card. This is a heavy duty folder so the cardstock needs to be strong enough to withstand not only the embossing, but getting repeatedly skooshed with liquids lol!
I added blue patina, biscotti and blush perfect pearls into some mini misters, added water and sprayed. It was a pearly effect, but too pale, so I sprinkled on some jade infusions and skooshed with pearl perfect pearls, and water. I heat dried then played some more til I was happy with the effect.
I ran the card back through the embossing folder a few times too as the wetting and drying affected the definition of the shells.
Here's another pic of the shimmer.
The challenge at Paper Artsy is to create something pearlescent.
There are lots of inspiring pieces by the design team and I loved the cards by Hazel Agnew, and was inspired by her use of mica sprays.
I'm also linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday,
and the anything goes option at Seize the Birthday.
Biscotti, blue patina, blush and pearl perfect pearls; a little bit jaded Paper Artsy infusions; Spellbinders shell beauty embossing folder; Lawn Fawn happy birthday border die, versamark ink and liquid platinum embossing powder.
Thanks for visiting,
