Shimmery Embossed Seashells Card

 I’ve been wanting to try this technique for a while, and finally got the chance to this weekend.  I made this card as a thank you card for a customer who ordered the Seashells Embossing Folder.  I envisioned creating a seashell scene, with colored seashells and a shimmery blue background to mimic a bubbly ocean floor.

Unfortunately, the pictures don’t really capture the full effect of the finished card.

I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with the Seashells Folder.  I applied ink to each of the raised images using a sponge dauber.  Then I filled a water spritzer a bit of water, a few drops ofPool Party Reinker and a few drops of Frost Shimmer Paint.  I then spritzed the entire card front.  Once it was dry, I attached it to a Pool Party card base.

To see how the card was made, click on the video below.  NOTE: if the video does not appear below, you can see it HERE.

Happy Stampin’!
