I made today’s card so I could show you what a great spritzer
the new Shimmer Paint makes. Unfortunately, it’s like trying
to photograph Wink of Stella Clear Glitter,i.e. nigh
I took three extra photographs of me holding my card at obscure
angles, and taking close-ups and there’s only a hint of the
shimmer in one photograph! I also combined this card with
using the Delightfully Delicate Laser-Cut Specialty
Designer Series Paper (DSP).
I felt sure I’d already used this design from the DSP but I can’t
find a copy of it in my file! I decided to colour this card
front piece using one of our sponge rollers with Coastal Cabana
Ink, and it worked like a dream.
I used my Heat Tool to make sure the ink was dry before I
spritzed the layer. I used approximately 50% water and 50%
rubbing alcohol in my spritzer and sprayed it inside my
homemade “spritzing” box!
I used my Heat Tool again to dry the layer off, and the resulting
glimmer is fabulous! The DSP behind the Laser Cut Design is
from Tranquil Textures, and although Stampin’ Up! list this
pack of DSP as blending with Mint Macaroon and Soft Sea Foam,
I think it also looks great with Coastal Cabana!
I chose the sentiment from Beautiful You, and the flowers
are from Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and die cut with the
co-ordinating Framelits called Bouquet Bunch. I decided to
add some sprigs of leaves using the Sprig Punch which
will be available in the new Christmas catalogue which
goes live on 5th September 2018.
I punched out three sprigs using our Vellum Cardstock, and
then spritzed them with the Shimmer Paint. I somewhat
over-spritzed and they were drenched! I dried them off
using my Heat Tool again!
The shimmer looks fabulous but it can hardly be seen in the
photographs which is really disappointing! To decorate the
inside of the card I added a layer of Coastal Cabana and
a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, and then adhered
another Vellum Sprig and a Coastal Cabana flower.
Above is the only photograph where you can see some glimmer!
Please imagine what that looks like when sprayed all over the
Laser Cut Design, and the Vellum Sprigs, and you’ll
understand what I’ve been trying to describe! LOL!!
I hope you give it a try, even ifonly to see what I’m
talking about! LOL! I hope you have a great weekend,
and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
