Shimmery seahorses.

Hello blog friends!

I really should be outside enjoying the sun today, but I just had to try out some beautiful new embossing powders I found yesterday!  They are lustre embossing powders from Cosmic Shimmer, just scrumptious!
In this tag (that took ages and ages to make!!)  I used several stamps from Designs by Ryn, Seahorse set, Seaweed set and Rising bubbles.  There is a TCW stencil hiding in the background too, I think it is the Cell Theory stencil.




I hope in these close-up shots you can see the 'lustre' effect of the embossing powders.......


I coloured the rising bubbles slightly and added some stickles to the top of each bubble too.


I hope you like this tag, I'm quite pleased with the effect the powders give, another way to add lots of yummy texture!

Thank you for popping by, I'd love to hear what you think of it! :) xxxxxxx

Hey Wendy, the effect of the iridescent embossing powder on Seaweed Set is just beautiful! I like how you stamped over top of Rising Bubbles as well. Gives the scene depth. LOVE this one :D Oh - and P.S. I will send along those 4 stamps for you to work with next. Sailing got cancelled :( Another time.

Can you tell me the steps of how you made this tag? I am very interested to try out this technique. This is just gorgeous!

I would love to hear from you. I make cards and I am always trying to learn more and improve.
