Shimmerz Spritz - Bubble Wrap Tutorial



As promised on the video, here's what the finished project looks like. The shimmery stamped background lends interest and dimension to an otherwise plain piece of cardstock.

here's a close up of the bubble wrap impression--although shimmerz dries really quickly, you'll want to use a heat gun to dry the spritz after stamping the bubble wrap so you'll keep the nice uniform circles (well unless you're trying to achieve a different effect).

I also added some shimmerz paints to my project. Sunflower shimmerz makes this sun a little brighter!

I used mossy stone and sunflower shimmerz on the tree tops for a wonderful iridescent sheen.


Thanks so much for taking the time to view the video! I hope you use this idea as a springboard for you own! Have a great day!

Tanisha ... I thoroughly enjoyed your video tutorial ! Who would have thought that something as simple as bubble wrap could make such a striking background ... I love it and can't wait to try it. I don't have any shimmerz yet, but it's definitely on my "wish" list now!! Thanks again. Love your layout as well.
