All of the stamps and the embossing powder I used are retired. But just because SU doesn't sell them anymore does not mean that they don't still work! Just that I can't sell them to you :) Unless I wanted to sell mine, which I don't :)
In late October, I finally decided I have savored these panels long enough and started making some cards with them. I cut this panel in half and made 2 cards that are almost identical.
To create the panel, I first embossed the ribbon in Melon Mambo embossing powder all over. Then I sponged stripes of color onto the panel, alternating shades of pink (Pink Pirouette, Strawberry Slush, and Melon Mambo) with Smoky Slate. Then I took a mixture of water and Pearl colored Perfect Pearls and spritzed the whole panel, and dried it with the heat tool. Fantastic shimmer results!
The ribbon was stamped with Pink Pirouette, then Courage was embossed in Silver embossing powder. Diecut and paper pierce the oval, diecut a 2¼" circle, and one of the banners from the Project Life framelits set in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
I stamped all over the Pink Pirouette panel with the words in Pink Pirouette.
