Abaloney Is No Baloney

Hi, fellow Junkies!

I admit I have been on the Technique Wagon lately. I love learning and trying new things. And this technique called Abalone was a fun one! This technique was from the October/November 2010 Technique Junkie Newsletter.
To start, I stamped the flower image from the new release, You Are The World, in several places around the CS using Versamark ink, stamping off the edge so it looked more like a patterned background. I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink. 

Using a small paintbrush and some Mica Powder in different colors, I softly brushed the powders across the stamped images. I then took a larger soft brush and brushed off any excess powder, and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops. The panel was then adhered to a purple card base.

The shimmer of the mica powder on the black cardstock is stunning. It's just so shiny! I hope you give this technique a try for yourself!  And don't forget...
Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!
