Can you see the shimmer on this card? I am working on wedding invitations for a client and wanted to play with a tone on tone look. This is not the actual thank you card for my client but it shows off the Frost White Shimmer Paint really well. I hope you can see how pretty the Shimmer Paint looks on the Whisper White cardstock. If you can’t see it, trust me, in person this card is so special.
I applied the paint to the stamp with a sponge making sure the coverage was not too heavy on the stamp. Then I stamped as normal. The shimmer paint cleans off the stamp easily if it is still wet. If you get distracted and can’t clean the stamp right away, the StazOn cleaner will take the Shimmer Paint right off.
To finish the card, I embellished it really simply with a couple of ribbons and two of the oval punches.
Although the Shimmer Paints were featured in the Holiday Mini, they are still available to order due to their popularity. Please see the chart below showing the item numbers for the Shimmer Paints and other products that can be ordered now although they do not apear in a current catalogue.
