This is a stencil print from leftover Nuance powder on the stencil from this post. 
I added 2 real leaves from a Ginko tree... to which I added some Nuance powder as well, and when still wet, heat embossed the wetness with clear embossing powder. 
I also sponged the edges with a distress ink. 
I added some with Nuance colored scrappers floss to finish it off.

Playing with Minx shimmering inks

Hi all, 
the Design Team of Art Anthology is
 featuring the Minx shimmering inks lately.
They're fun! 

So, I will be featuring them today as well.
They are great to make backgrounds for cards
or maybe for an art journal page
 (or a canvas, or a watercolor painting etc etc).

For now : 4 different ways to use the inks.
.. .. I hope to do some more in near future!


I've used the same colors for all 4 techniques.

For step-by-steps of all 4 techniques,
please see the Snapguide at the end of this post!

****

1. Using household wrap to create gorgeous shimmery effects.

2. Making a print with Minx inks on a gelliplate.

3. A brayered background with the leftover inks from technique 2.

4. Making a background with Minx and salt crystals.

Memories...

The mask/stencil is a new design from me with Magenta. Yes, the duo is in two sizes, but it's 2 masks ánd 2 stencils! 

The background is a gelliprint with Nuance powders. 
I sponged over the flower mask with red and green distress inks to make the  flower pop. I added accents with a black and white acrylic marker. The script has been stamped and heat embossed in white.

LOVELY new Nuance fall colors !



****
First step in creating this background: spray some diluted Gesso over the background and leave to dry. 
Heat emboss the area around the leaves with clear after sponging with versamerk over the stencil.  
Tap different autumnal colors Nuance on the leaves, mist with water and see the magic happen.
Tap some more Nuance if needed. 



 When dry, clean up the heat embossing. 
I LOVE the effect of the white gesso splatters. 
To finish it off sponge and paper distress the edges.
Stamp a script in the background. 
I've used a dutch sentiment.

LOVE the colors of autumn!
