Second last day of Sale-A-Bration. Here is a card for you using ‘Madison Avenue’ Stamp Set. I demonstrated this at a workshop recently. I CASED this one from our Demonstrator “Impressions” magazine. Did you know you can colour your silver Glimmer paper ANY colour you would like?? I know you can buy the Red and the Champagne but sometimes it is nice to have a little sparkle in a different colour. I will tell you about that shortly. Here is the card.
I have used the Vine Embossing Folder – and check it out! Try reversing your folder sometimes to deboss the card. It gives a different look. The DSP strips are from Sycamore Street DSP. You can’t really tell from the photo but I have also clear embossed the flowers on the Tangerine and the Summer Starfruit card. I added some Summer Starfruit Satin stitched ribbon to finish it off. See the Razzleberry Scallop Circle glimmer though. It is a little hard to tell. It is a little lighter colour than the Razzleberry colour is normallly but it gives a subtle shimmer.
To colour the Glimmer paper on this card I sponged the colour on using the Sponge Daubers. Just dab the dauber on the inkpad and “pounce” it over your card. Continually re-ink and pounce. The more you dab the more intense colour you get. I wouldn’t recommend doing a large area for this. Maybe a brayer would work for that????? Not sure about that one but for small areas this is good to create your different colours.
It’s a great effect and good to know you can have other colours to that lovely sparkly Glimmer paper.
Last day for Sale-A-Bration tomorrow. I have one more card to show you tomorrow so stop by then.
