multi-tasking mousse

I love & adore multi-tasking supplies! I love the creativity they encourage and they help keep my crafty stash in check (sort of, haha!). And I have found a new one that is knocking my socks off, Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. You can do everything with mousse...gild, watercolor, color over, color under, use with stencils, use with all kinds of paper & embellishments...the list goes on. 

This card was creating for my sweet friend Laura's bday, using mouse with embossed images for a resist technique. I not only wanted to create something pretty for my friend but I'm also trying to talk her into getting some of her own mousse, LOL!
To create this card, I stamped in VersaMark on white cardstock and embossed in white (clear would work too.) Then I just applied the mousse over the top.

For a very smooth and saturated mousse finish, try applying with a soft cloth or sponge. Also apply multiple coats of mousse in various directions, with a moment to dry between each. 


See the color change in the above photos? That's the gorgeous shimmer of the mousse! I use Pink Flambe mousse for this project but if you are thinking of just dipping your toe in, I suggest Mother of Pearl mousse to start. The mousse is easy to tint with water-based reinkers. 

And make sure to check out more about mousse this week in The Classroom at Ellen Hutson(the team has some crazy cool projects and I have another one to share on Thursday that I'm pretty excited about). And because I'm an enabler (ask Laura), mousse (and all Tonic) is 15% off this week at EH. Here's a link :)
