Mom ATC #1 - Lumiere Halo Background Technique

Since we have the tin made it's time to fill it with ATC's!

I have printed all of my sentiments and images, got them cut out and ready to go...

Now I have to admit today I had so much fun playing I forgot to take pics!!

This paper was created using Jacquard's  Lumiere Halo Pink Gold (#555) metallic paint.  This stuff is awesome, it's got a dusty pink color with a pale gold shimmer mixed in.  I don't know how they do it but it's amazing. 

To create this paper I simply squeezed a small amount of the paint onto my non-stick craft mat.  I then took a damp sea sponge and pounced it into the paint. Next, dab the paint over the entire surface of cardstock.  If you want a deeper color you can continue to layer on the same or additional colors.

NOTE: The tiny bit of water in the sponge will help create the bubbly look on the cardstock. 

I wish I could somehow show you the gold shimmer hidden in the pink.  It is really stunning in person.

I then added my sentiment, image and other embellishments.
