This is my first time playing with Tonic's NUVO Embellishment Mousse--the pearlescent, shimmery medium comes in 24 shades. There are a variety of ways to apply/use Embellishment Mousse, but I'll be focusing on "direct to paper" for today's project.

Interesting tidbits I discovered while playing with Tonic's Mousse:
- The medium has a consistency comparable to butter, cream cheese or a thick frosting and can be spread similarly. (I'm comparing it to food products as far as texture goes, but despite the yummy colors, it is NOT edible!)
- It retains the shape and dimension it is spread into and does not run or drip, unless thinned with water.
- It can be applied with fingertips, sponges, brushes, daubers, etc.
- It dries fairly quickly and once dry, is "fixed" to the paper and will not smear or smudge, transfer to fingertips, or reactivate when layering more mousse on top.
- It's translucent when thinly applied so other colors underneath can show through.
- If spread thinly, the surface will be smooth and flat, with a shimmery/pearlescent finish.
- You can stamp over it with permanent type inks, including Brilliance Graphite Black (faster drying pigment ink that performs well on non-porous papers)
- When stamping over the dry mousse surface, an inked stamp can sometimes slide across the surface; consider using the MISTI for stamping to avoid slipping.
