3 ways to use nuvo mousse with water

Nuvo Embellishment Mousse is a really cool & versatile medium for paper crafting! It has tons of uses but today I want to share 3 ways I like to use it with water! 

And just a warning, I'm a little obsessed with the Neat & Tangled Grateful Heart stamp set so it will be appearing on every project today, LOL!

  1. Create DIY shimmer paper and watercolor on top.
  2. Apply direct to stamp & mist for faux watercolor.
  3. Add water to mousse to create metallic watercolors.
See more about these techniques in my video...

To finish this card, I stamped the sentiment on top of the moussed panel and heat set. I also added a little faux splatter with a black Copic marker.

I stamped, colored and die cut the blooms from the Neat & Tangled Grateful Heart set and added it on top of the faux watercolored background. I also added a little mousse watercolor on top of the die cut for a little extra shimmer.

For this card, I stamped the blooms in embossing ink and embossed with gold powder. I like to have the raised lines when watercolor.
If you haven't played with Nuvo Mousse yet, I hope you are inspired to try it. And if you are a mousse pro, tell me your favorite way to use it!

Plus, make sure you head over to the Neat & Tangled blog for a chance to win $25 to the N&T shop!
