Hi everyone, a couple weeks ago I saw a demo on the Creative Expressions Facebook page showing the new Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish.
WOW, these are awesome! the short demo had me hooked and I went searching for them straight away!
You can find the full set below.
These pots of shimmer polish change colour, from white to black cardstock, it’s so cool to watch and very easy to use.
The finish they give is a smooth beautiful shine to your cardstock.
You can apply the polish with the sponge attached, or your finger, cloth, brush, and spatula.
These are examples of the colours produced when using them on white cardstock.
They look wonderful brushed over an embossed piece of cardstock, or used to colour a whole piece of card and then die cut to make matching embellishments.
The 3D Embossing Folders I used…
The new awesome 3D Creative Expressions “Bubble Burst” embossing folder available from CraftsStash.
The Gemini 3D “Studded Leather Embossing Folder available from CraftStash.
The 3D Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder available from Stampin Up.
Below are the colours you get from the same pots but this time using them on black cardstock.
The colours are so rich and vibrant and totally unexpected when you first apply them to the cardstock.
The look is more grungy and would work great for masculine cards and Halloween themed projects.
Check out my excitement when I use these in my tutorial below.
Check out my video below.
I would love to know your thoughts on these, I’ve think they are brilliant and I will definitely be using them a lot.
If you are into mixed media you will love these.
Have a great weekend.
