Translucent Pearlescent



And right now you're asking yourself...where the heck does she get these names for her posts?  Well truth be known...just what ever happens to pop into my little old brain at the time *grin*.

Actually, in this case, it's what I used to create the shiny black/blue/aqua piece on my card.  Once I cut the piece of black card stock, it was temporarily adhered to my craft sheet.  Next, a template was placed over top.  Like a mad scientist I started playing with my new translucent embossing paste and some Pearl Ex...oooh the fun you can have with colors!!!  Once it was mixed up, it was spread across the template and then quickly lifted.  It took about an hour for it to dry...patience...patience...patience.  The color you'll see really depends on how you hold it in the light. Isn't that fun?

The sentiment has been die cut (with my new die) from a scrap of dry embossed paper that was in my "save for later" pile and then just a sprinkling of sequins (my favorite new embellie!).

Definitely a clean and graphic style today!
