My friends at my local scrapbook store, Two Scrapbook Friends challenged me to use Nuvo Mousse. I have to be honest, they have been sitting on my desk for over a month and I didn't touch them, as I was a little unsure of what to do with them. I did a live stream on my Stampin' Steve Facebook page last week decided to crack them open and give them a try...LIVE!! Oh my gosh, I don't know why I waited so long to play with them. I feel like I have just cracked the surface of the possibilities of this amazing new product from Tonic Studios. If you like beautiful shimmer and shine, then this product is for you.
I cut an A2 sized card front out of Tim Holtz water colour paper. I will say that I have fell back in love with this brand of watercolour paper as I love how bright white it is. I decided to do some ink smooshing on my craft mat with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide, slowly building up layers to get a very cool demential effect.
Once my I was happy with my smooshing and it was fully dry, I grabbed the Nuvo Mousse in Indian Gold and Pure Platinum as well as the Mini Woven Stencil from TCW. I used a blending tool with foam applicator and basically blended the two colours together with the stencil overtop of my Oxide background. The result was stunning! Is subtle at first but when the shimmery Nuvu mousse catches the light - wow!
For the stamp set, I used Enchanted Iris and its coordinating dies from Altenew. I stamped them using memento tuxedo black ink on Hammermill 100lbs card stock I coloured the beautifully illustrated images with my Copic markers using the following colours
Flowers - V09, V17, V15, V12, Y08, Y06
Leaves - YG01, YG03, YG17, YG63, YG67
To finish off my card, I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and added yellow matting to bring it all together. I had a lot of fun creating this card, thanks for stopping by!
Until next time - Stephen
