This is for today's Technique Challenge Embossed Shimmer. Our directions were to start w/ acetate and stipple on Lumiere paint mixed with reinkers. I don't have any Lumiere, but found that a Adirondack Paint Dabber in Pearl worked much the same. I squeezed out some pearl paint onto a craft sheet and added a drop of Distress Aged Mahagony reinker and stippled. This was repeated with Walnut Stain reinker until the acetate was coated. After it dried, it was dry pressure embossed with Cuttlebug's Allegro folder and then swiped with Stazon Timber Brown the raised areas. The Violin Music scroll Rubbernecker Stamp Co. was stamped using Stazon Jet Black 3 times on off white parchment. After cutting out the scroll, violin and bow I misted them with distress reinker/Vintage Photo and highlighted some areas with copic markers. The scroll was layered on a burgandy mat and the violin & bow on black. The bow has gold thread strings (can't think of what they are technically called and the bow and violin are on dimensional foam tape. I finished the card with a moire wired bow and a music clef charm.
