now another Insirans Paints project with a little how to for ya:
I saw this background technique for shimmering paint in a recent issue of Technique Junkies newsletter – an INVALUABLE resource BTW. My hert is stamped using the dabber technique with the Inspiration Paints – they work SO WELL for this – perfect detail still shows through! i mounted it on a base shape i cut fron the FOrever Young cricut cartridge and used a strip of SEI Juliette papers across the middle. finished it off with a few glittered skittles!


It was incredibly difficult to get the abundance of shimmer to show up well on camera but the hert and the background are both magnificent! for the background i put a line of Inspirations paint down on my craft sheet (about 1″ long). then i placed a drop of Pebble reinker on one end and a drop of cranberry reinker on the other end right on top of the shimmer paint. then i simply took a sponge and dabbed into the paint mixture and then randomly onto my cardstock – easy peasy! i ran the piece through my cuttlebug before adhering it to my cardfront. i am anxious to experiment with more color combos to see what i can come up with! who wants to join me????

well OUR LUCKY WINNER RebeccaG will start us off!!

as for the rest of you – pick up a few pots for yourself – easter is around the corner and those eggs need some SHIMMER!!!

that’s it for me for now – i will be back tomrrow with TIOT project!

better blog siggy
