Shimmering Stitching

Hi all! If you're on the East Coast, like me, you're probably digging out from snow! I hope you're all warm & safe!

Well, in my cozy hibernation, I made a fun discovery. You can make your machine stitching shimmer beautifully - all you need is Shimmerz and a fine tip paint brush. Machine stitch just as you normally would, and then paint away! Wait until you see the difference it makes on your project. Here's a closer look:

You'll notice I used Sky Shimmerz and Pixie Dust Blingz on the frame of the Lockhart stamp image (right over Copics - another great look!) and then I used Pink Shimmerz over my white thread.

Give this trick a try - and I would love to see the results! ~ Jenn Ellefson
