Today’s card showcases the amazing Shimmer paint that is in the mini catalogue, you really do need to see it in person to get the full effect of the sparkle it is wonderful and there are 3 colours to choose from, 2 translucent ones, one with a silver tint and one with a golden tint, on one which is opaque Platinum, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, did I say that already………?

Rose Red, Regal Rose and the ever so versatile Chocolate Chip is the colour combo, all of the large flowers have Rose red and Champagne Mist shimmer paint on them, as does the Chocolate Chip circle, here is a closer look…..

So how do you get Rose Red and Champagne Mist onto your stamp……..carefully……..tee hee………….sorry for teasing……..but you do need to be careful and have your stamp ‘n’ scrub at the ready.

Ink up your stamp with Rose Red, put a little Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint into a saucer, use a sponge dauber to pick up the shimmer paint and tap onto the stamp, stamp the image as normal, you can get 2-3 images from one application, they do get paler but that’s part of the fun!   Then clean your stamp……….IMPORTANT………..Do this before you re-ink the stamp.  If you don’t you will end up with a sparkly inkpad, which looks pretty, but might not be good for it.  (I’ll let you know……I have several sparkly inkpads now………shimmer paint and dazzling diamonds adorn many of my inkpads!)

As you carry on your sponge dauber and the shimmer pain in the saucer will get pinker and pinker, this is why you don’t want to take it direct from the bottle!

To make your Chocolate chip card stock sparkly just rub the dauber over the card with Shimmer paint and allow to dry.

I hope that is clear but do leave me a comment if not, actually please do leave me a comment, it is so lovely to hear from you!

Happy Stampin’
