Create a Rainbow Background with Memento Markers and Shimmer Stix

by Lindsay Adreon

I LOVE anything and everything rainbow in cardmaking, and if it sparkles, that’s even better! Making a rainbow watercolor background is pretty simple, but adding a good amount of sparkle without making mud can be more tricky. The Shimmer Stix are the PERFECT applicator to make a fun background that keeps its bright and vibrant colors without sacrificing any of the sparkle! I was so excited that the Shimmer Stix worked for this technique and can’t wait to try them with an ombre background, next!! I made two cards today, a birthday and hello card, plus check out the inside, too!!

Use a Mirror Technique to Create a Cute Mermaid Card

by Roni Johnson

Use a Mirror Technique to Create a Cute Mermaid Card

Imagine’s Craft Mat is a handy tool to have in your crafting arsenal. Not only is it great for keeping your work surface clean but there are many techniques you can use it for as well. Take the above card for example. Can you tell which mermaid is stamped and which one is a mirror image? Bet you can’t tell, can you? Find out the answer below….

Skill: Beginner
Time: 45 minutes + dry time

Directions


Step 1

Stamp the desired image on to the Craft Mat using VersaFine Clair ink. VersaFine Clair is an excellent choice for mirror images as there is a nice open time and it creates such a crisp clean image when stamped.


Step 2

Place a piece of cardstock over the image stamped on the Craft Mat and burnish with your finger.


Step 3

Carefully lift the paper. Wipe the excess ink from the Craft Mat with a damp cloth. It’s as simple as that. You may finish the card as desired. Did you know that the Craft Mat is also a great palette for water coloring? Simply scribble Memento Dual-Tip markers onto the craft mat. You may then blend and pick up the inks with a water brush.


Step 4

To finish off the example I stamped a second mermaid directly to paper and added a sentiment.


Step 5

I then watercolored the image as desired using Memento Dual-Tip Markers and a water brush.


Step 6

I added a bit of Shimmer Pico Embellisher to various areas to add a bit of shine and sparkle. The green-tailed mermaid was the mirror image.
