Stamping with Shimmerz

I have been using these large background rubber stamps for my cards lately. I spray the stamps with Shimmerz Spritz and I wanted to show you how I do that.
These stamps are large enough to cover a standard size card. Spray the stamp with Red-y or Not Shimmerz Vibez. Lay the card on top of the stamp and rub with your hand. I like to do it this way because I can see where I position the paper, especially here where there are straight lines.
This is what it looks like after you remove the paper.
For the second layer I used patterned paper and stamped it with the same stamp two times. Once using Licorice Shimmerz Spritz and then with Red-y or not Shimmerz Vibez.
The next two cards are done the same way. I used Sea Foam Shimmerz Spritz for both mixed with a little Licorice Shimmerz Spritz. Once I have the stamp out I spray and stamp several pieces at once, that way I have something to use later and it is dry and ready to go.
