Keep That Old Eyeshadow!

Hello again, well I'm so excited! My pre-order from the new catalog is finally on its way! It finally shipped this afternoon and should be here next Thursday....I made a mistake and did not adjust my shipping to express insert sad sad face! So, now I must practice impatiently being patient lol. 
Anyway, today I want to show you a card that I did using some old eyeshadow I had laying around. That's right, I said eyeshadow! So, while doing your Spring cleaning, should you come across any old eyeshadow, rather than throw it out, haul it off to your craft room!
 
To accomplish this technique, you will need an embossing pigment ink like Versamark, a stamp of choice (I used the Swallowtail by Stampin' Up! Which happens to be on the retirement list) some eyeshadow and either sponges or a brush to apply the shadow. (Cotton swabs will also work)
To begin, ink up the stamp and stamp the image onto your cardstock. Then begin applying the eyeshadow by brushing or sponging the color over the stamped image. Once you've applied all of the color and you are happy with your coverage, take a clean facial tissue and rub the image to remove any losse eyeshadow powder. This also seems to help the color adhere better to the ink. In this example, I stamped the Best mother ever verse from the Stampin' Up! set And Many More using Versamark ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder onto Basic Black cardstock scrap, bannered the end using the retiring Banner punch and adhered it using glue dots. 
I hope you enjoyed today's project and if you have any questions please ask. In the meantime, share with me in the comments below which stamp set or tool you are most sad to see go that is on the retirement list?
Have a great day and happy stamping!
