I tried out two cards with the same design but used different mediums to colour the background panel…the end results of both were pretty and shiny so I was quite happy that my ‘experiment’ didn’t need to be binned..
First, I stamped the Simon Says Stamp Circle Doodle background stamp on watercolour cardstock and heat embossed them with Altenew Embossing powder…
For the first panel, I carefully sprinkled various Nuvo Shimmer Powders and then spritzed some water on it…it is quite a magical process as you see the colour move around..
For the second panel I used Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers for a bit more controlled colouring… I then sprayed some Perfect Pearls powder mixed with water over the panel to get a similar shine on it as the Nuvo Shimmer Powders…
Once both the background panels were dry, I used some black glitter cardstock to die cut the sentiment from Altenew Bold Greetings and then added a lace border at the top using Altenew Creative Edges Lace Die…I have also added a few black Nuvo drops to embellish these cards..
I really like how the cards ended up with a bit of a retro look…thanks so much for stopping by my blog today…happy crafting..!!
