Create a beautiful midnight sparkling sky with a few simple supplies!
VersaFine Clair inks are so unique because they are a quick drying pigment ink that remains embossable for several minutes after it has dried. Because of this unique property you can take the every day Northern Lights technique to a whole new level of beauty. After all of the inks have been applied and blended you can then add sparkle embossing powder to add the stars to the night sky!
