Notes: My example uses pastels over white craft ink. I used hairspray (another vital late 80ís beauty product-then used to produce mile high bangs) to set the pastels and iridescent ice embossing powder over Versamark to create the dazzling diamond dust look. Sorry it is difficult to photograph so much sparkle! Cool Caribbean reminded me of my aqua lameí prom dress with floral lace overlay from 1988-LOL. I canít wait to see what you all are inspired to create!
I tried using hairspray on pastels that a) had no versamark under them and b) were on black cardstock. I ruined my Halloween card, so apparently one should use white or light cardstock if he or she wants to do the faux dazzling diamond dust technique (using II ep) over pastels.
Itís also best if you donít overdo it on the hairspray. You just need a light misting to set the pastels. Using too much can make your beautiful pastels run.
