Can’t Resist Adding Shimmer
If you don’t mind getting a little ink on your hands, you can make a really fun background by using your fingers as an applicator for your inks! Combining this with a resist sentiment and of course, some shimmer makes for a fun and yet sophisticated card! Let me show you how.
Time: 30 minutes + dry time
Stamp your image using VersaMark on a piece of watercolor paper.
Cover the stamped image with White Embossing Powder and melt the powder with a heat tool.
Select three colors of Memento Ink and apply it on the Imagine Craft Mat. Spray the ink with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz.
Apply the ink with the best tool that we have, our fingers. Mixing the colors or simply applying color by color works well. Try to cover the whole surface. NOTE: Memento is a dye ink and will temporarily stain your fingers, possibly past the first washing.
If you did not get enough shimmer, spritz the piece after inking. Cut this piece with the stitched border die.
To finalize the card cut the card base out of white cardstock. Cut a mat for the watercolor paper out of an alternate stitched border die. Adhere together with Tear It! Tape
