Crafty Ann's Challenge 3 Texture

I'm not quite sure how clearly this image will show up on here, but here it is anyway.
Today's plan was to spend the day cleaning and sorting things out ready for the Christmas Tree, cards, lights etc to go up. Ups!!!!
Instead have had lovely relaxing play with Cosmic Shimmer UTE and inks, much more fun than cleaning!
Stamped the Clarity seahorse and embossed with yummy Lapis Sapphire UTE, embossed it and then painted in the gaps with pink mica powder. I then gave it a couple of coatings of the Cosmic Shimmer UTE clear embossing powder, cracked around the edges and added some silver ink, to get in to the cracks, then re-heated it. It ended up with such a fab texture, but a couple of bubbles that just would not go, that's where the aurora borialis gem stones came in, as you know I do like a bit of sparkle!
