I’ve been getting lots of requests to show different ways to use Shimmer Paint, so I thought I’d do a series on it. All week long I’ll be sharing different techniques and ways that Shimmer Paint can be used to add some shimmer to your projects. Our Shimmer Paint comes in 4 different shades, we have Bright Copper, Champagne Mist, Frost White and Vegas Gold and each one is stunning in it’s own way. I shared a card the other day using the Copper Shimmer Paint on Doilies. You can see that HERE
Today’s card features 3 different ways to use Shimmer Paint. I started out using the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint with a sponge Dauber and I pounced the paint directly on the stamp from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set. The paint dries relatively fast, so you want to make sure to clean your stamp and Sponge Dauber right way.
Next, I created an interesting background on the Merry Merlot cardstock by spilling a small amount of Shimmer Paint on waxed paper. I then used a second piece of waxed paper that I crumpled up into a ball to pick up a bit of the paint and pounced it on the cardstock in a random pattern.
My third use of the Shimmer Paint was to change the color of the Faceted Dots. Since we have no dot embellishments that come in copper, I thought this was the perfect solution. The Faceted Dots come in a package with Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron, but with a Sponge Dauber and the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint, I was able to pounce the copper color onto the dots and now I have the perfect embellishment to coordinate with the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon and the Snowflake Wire Embellishments.
Be sure to come back each day this week, for more ways to use the wonderful Shimmer Paints
