Embossed Shimmer

Good Morning! The TLC Challenge (Try a New Technique) on Splitcoast today was to stipple Lumiere tinted with reinkers onto acetate and run through the cuttlebug to create a shimmery embossed background. I cut the piece of acetate 4" by 5 1/4 ". Drops of Old Olive, Only Orange, and Ruby Red reinkers were placed on a paper plate. The Lumiere was added to each of the drops with a stipple brush and then stippled on the acetate. I did use a a piece of papertowl to move some of the goo because my brush kept loosing hairs! After it was dry, I ran it through the cuttlebug. Remember to place the colored side down in the folder....I didn't do that the first time so I had to make another one. You don't want the paint side up on your card because it will peel off! I layered the acetate on a piece of Pumpkin Pie and then mounted on Old Olive.
The Lockhart image was stamped with Memento Brown ink and colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Ribbon, Prima, and leaf brad complete the card. Thanks for visiting and please come again! I will be uploading some fun Halloween cards later today.
