Collecting Seashells 2

Earlier I posted a card using the Couture Creations Collecting Seashells embossing folder.  Today's card uses the same embossing folder but in a different way.

I started off by embossing a piece of teal colored foil cardstock.  After embossing it, I used a sanding block to sand down the embossing to reveal the silver color which is under the teal.

I then colored in some of the shells with glittery gel pens similar to these.  When you use a gel pen on  foil cardstock, you need to be light handed and more or less barely touch the paper with the pen so the gel doesn't streak.  It's not hard to do but does take a little patience.

Here is another photo of the same card:

You could also use Stickles or fill the spots with glue and sprinkle on some glitter.

All of the products I used were purchased at Ecstasy Crafts.
