Magic Speckle Technique

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to show you a technique using this fabulous Magic Speckle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle! I just love the shimmery look it gives. I know you will love using it too.

First I cut out my frame and patted it with Versa mark ink. Then I sprinkled the Magic Speckle embossing powder randomly over the frame and heat set it. I did not want to completely cover the frame because I wanted a patina look.

This is pretty just by itself. But like I said I was aiming for a patina look.  So I patted the frame again with Versa Mark ink and randomly added embossing powders and kept repeating the first step until I had the look I wanted. The Magic Speckle embossing powder adds such a nice look with the other powders.

I also used a little of the Magic Speckle embossing powder on my swirls to give them some shimmer and texture.

On the butterfly I just used the Magic Speckle over the whole image. What a beautiful, pearly effect it gave!

I also experimented with using the Magic Speckle embossing powder on patterned paper and I just love how it looks too.

There are so many ways to use this amazing embossing powder. I hope you have fun experimenting on your own. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
