Is there a way to measure magic? I don't know, really. But the concept of a magic-ometer was something that came to me when I was developing this set and one of the first ideas I *had* to execute once I got the prototype into my hands.
I love it. LOVE it. LOVE IT!!!
The images were all stamped with black pigment ink onto watercolor paper and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
After watercoloring the images, I die cut them all out, and die cut more of the same shapes from 110# Neenah to stack and glue them together, turning them into thick, "faux chipboard" embellishments.
It's hard to tell in the pic, but I applied Stickles Glitter Glue kinda heavily on the right side of the rainbow, and then spread it out towards the left using a piece of scrap card stock as kind of a squeegee; it became thinner on the left as I did that, which I actually really liked so I didn't mess with it afterwards.
Glued on some micro clear white (they're iridescent so they reflect rainbow-ish) star sequins by HAI Supply and then sat on my hands; I think it was a good call. LOL!
