Iridescent Shells

Card made with Stampin'UP! stamp set: By the Seashore, and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder
Yes its fall, but can I post one more card with seashells?  I was really happy with how this card turned out and wanted to share.  I love how the shells have a wet, freshly washed on shore look.  

To get that "iridescent" look to the shells I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder.    After stamping the shells (in Island Indigo) I used a Blender Pen to pick up Versamark Ink and cover the shells.  The Versamark Ink has no color but its a gooey ink so its perfect for holding the embossing powder.  Then I sprinkled with the Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat set it.

The Iridescent Ice embossing powder is one of my favorite products.  I love the subtle sparkle it gives to my projects.  Because it is an embossing powder you will need to heat set it so it sticks to the projects.  

There are several ways to apply it to the project:
1.  On this project I used a blender pen to "paint" the Versamark ink where I wanted the shine
2. You could also use the Versamark pad to cover the whole project
