Imagine That!

Today I thought I would share a card that I made using one of my favorite Shimmerz techniques. Besides painting Primas with Shimmerz, my next favorite thing to do with it is make shimmery background paper. To make my background I stamped my image on light blue cardstock and then painted the whole thing with Angel Wings Shimmerz. Immediately after painting the cardstock (while the Shimmerz is still wet) I use a paper towel and rub over the entire piece in a circular motion. For this particular card I also rubbed some darker blue ink over the shimmerz to give a cloudy look. This technique lets you create shimmery background paper using any color of cardstock. I'm sure any color of Shimmerz would work but I find Angel Wings looks great on any color of cardstock.

Supplies used: Shimmerz Angel Wings (background), Shimmerz Green Olive (on the dragon), Stamps from Firecracker Designs by Pamela, SU CS, foam dimensionals, Dress It Up Glitter Dots.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
