Hello and welcome to the latest instalment of my tips and tricks series! Today I want to share with you one of my favourite ways to add some sparkle to a creation: the addition of glimmer paper.
Glimmer paper is a form of glitter coated card, available in 12" x 12" sheets in either Silver, Red or Champagne. I LOVE the silver one and here is why -
You can colour it to match any project you are working on!
Here it is in its normal silver colouring:
Check out that sparkle!!
And here is the silver glimmer paper side by side with some coloured with Rich Razzleberry ink:
It is a really simple technique - I promise!
- Take a small piece of glimmer paper, slightly larger than the finished piece you need (I usually add on about 1/4").
- Colour all over the glimmer paper using the BRUSH TIP of a Stampin' Write marker pen in your choice of colour. I find that the darker and richer colours are most effective.
- Wait for the ink to dry. This could take a little while, so go make a cuppa! Alternatively you can gently dry the ink using a heat tool.
- Punch your butterfly or other shape from your perfectly coordinated glimmer paper!
I hope you like this technique as much as I do?
