WOW! Sparkles embellishment mousse backgrounds

For today’s video as part of the WOW! Embossing Powder creative team, I am showing you how to add some ‘Sparkle’ to your embellishment mousse to create beautiful sparkles embellishment mousse backgrounds for your cards. This can step up your backgrounds adding a little sparkle and shine. I don’t think I have any more ways to add ‘sparkle’ in, except that Sparkles glitters are fantastic so make sure you pick up a pot or two!

Creating your own WOW! Sparkles embellishment mousse:

To create your own sparkles embellishment mousse, apply embellishment mousse to a non-stick surface like a glass mat or media mat. Work the mousse with a spatula to ensure a soft consistency. Sprinkle over Sparkles of your choosing – there are lots to choose from, and mix into the mousse with your spatula. You can add as much or as little Sparkles as you want!

When you are ready, apply over your stencil with a spatula and remove the stencil when complete. Make sure you wash your spatula and stencil straight away to prevent the mixture from drying on your tools. Allow drying before turning your backgrounds into a card.
