Bookmark and Metallic Rub-ons

About a year ago I had purchased a set of coloring mediums called "Metallic Rub On". Basically, it's creamy paint mixed with a metallic type of compound that makes it appear metallic when applied on to cardstock or your art work. Anyway, I really didn't know how to use them; therefore, they sat in my drawer.

I decided to use them because well. . .I bought them and I really hate wasting my money. I need to look up on the Internet samples of projects created using metallic rub ons because I'm sure there's techniques for this product. I just don't know what they are right now.

Not knowing how to really use them, I decided to rub it on a stamped image. I basically stamped an image and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I then rubbed the colors on to the image. When I was done, it actually came out okay. It has a very metallic shiny appearance to the image. I sealed the color medium with art sealant so it wouldn't rub off and decided to create a bookmark.

This bookmark is really cool looking. I like it, it looks like the "Metallic Rub" similar to the Glimmer Mist. Anyhow, you did a great job Maria!
