Create A Pearlized Finish On Your Cards

By | 11/07/2018

Create a pretty pearlized sheen on your cards using the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Powder Blue and Mother of Pearl.

I’m having a blast experimenting with this embellishment mousse just to see what I can do with it.

Today’s card and technique was created using this week’s Paper Craft Crew card sketch.  This fabulous sketch is very clean and simple.  I decided to try a soft subtle technique using Powder Blue and Mother of Pearl mousses to add a pretty sheen to my cards.  I tried this on white and black card stock.

It’s always hard to capture sparkle and shine in a photo, but I think you can see it here!

I watercolored the leaves with Catherine Pooler inks and then blended over the top with the two mousses to create this pretty sheen.  I used the gold and blue mixed with water to create splatter with a paint brush.

I think this is my new favorite splatter medium!

This is a nice one layer card!

I tried this over black card stock and used the mousses to color in the leaves.  This is an excellent product to add color to dark cardstock.

I was surprised at how well this covered the dark cardstock!  It does have a pretty sheen that I did not capture in this photo.  The hello was also created with the watercolor technique of the copper mousse.
