So I was playing around with my Shimmerz paints and I am finally in the seasonal mood. I decided to try painting on some different things. One thing I wanted to share today is that you can actually STAMP with SHIMMERZ!! Did you already know this? Am I following the cart here?? I have just discovered this and think it is awesome!!
Some things I stamped and then poured embossing powder over it to create an embossed effect with my Shimmerz. Some I just stamped and let dry. Both turned out beautifully I think.
So ya wanna see??
Okay......Here we go
Here is what I used...Stamps, some paint brushes and my SHIMMERZ. Oh and a piece of folded cardstock (my card base). Shimmerz colors I used on my project are Sky blue and Magenta. Stamps are from Close to my Heart.
Next all I did was paint some Shimmerz onto my stamp and then stamp the image onto your cardstock...AWESOME right?!! Look how sparkly that is!! I continued to paint my stamp and stamp the different snowflake images all over my cardstock.
For these snowflakes I wanted an embossed effect. So I poured embossing powder over my stamped snowflakes. The powder stuck beautifully. Next heat with your heat gun. You get a gorgous embossed sparkly image!! So cool!
Here it is all embsossed. I think it is so cool. I went on to stamp smaller snowflakes with a different color Shimmerz paint. These snowflakes I did not emboss. Just let dry.
Here it is all finished.
I really love how it came out. I am going to stamp more with my Shimmerz. The great thing is that is washes right off your stamp too. I just grabbed a baby wipe and it was gone. So easy Peasy. Love that!! So what do ya think?? Are ya gonna try this out for yourself? Let me know what ya think.
Well, that is what I have to share today. Hope your weekend is going well. I am feeling a little better. Especially since I got some crafty time in. YAY!! That always does it for me. I am such an addict..*giggles*
