So...the other day (maybe last week?), I got an email in my inbox from SUDSOL (if you're a demonstrator, you WANT to join this site - click in the link in my right hand sidebar) about a technique called Dazzling Diamond Dust.
Well...I finally carved out ENOUGH time to be able to try the technique and GAK!!! I had no Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder! What? I know...I was shocked too!
Well, thank goodness it turns out that if you mix equal parts of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds you can get a VERY similar effect. PHEW!!!
So, I went to the
science lab my creating space and got started. And...OH. MY. GOSH. I think I'm in love with this new technique. Here's what I made:
I used the Mixed Bunch set and stamped it in Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. Then the fun started! I covered the WHOLE surface of the stamped panel with Versamark and then coated it in my homemade Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (I ordered some, so it will be here in time for my March 3rd class when we'll be making this card). The next step was whipping out the heat gun and embossing it. Now...I have to admit that it was a little difficult to see the "change" as the embossing powder set, but I persevered and got the job done. :)
I have to say, I love it!! So bright and cheery! And that's why it made the cut for my Cheery cards class on March 3rd. I still have a FEW spots left, so if you'd like to come, let me know ASAP!
Would YOU like this card? Since it's so late in the day, this will be a two day (ish) give away. So, leave me a comment between now and midnight EST on February 19th, 2012 and I'll chose a winner on Monday Feb. 20th, 2012.
