Antiquing Tin Tile with a Twist

Today we're exploring Antiquing Tin Tile with a Twist.  The tin tile embossing folder is one of the favorites this fall in the Stampin'Up! Holiday mini catalog...here's what it looks like with no embellishment (I used the new Galvanized Metallic paper) 10-8-18 Pre

Now it's very easy to "antique" this image by simply sponging with Stazon Jet Black ink....notice I sponged the right side and left the left side un-sponged so you can tell the difference. 10-8-18 Sponged

I used the antiqued image to create this really cute Christmas card (I'll give you the directions below)... 10-8-18 Deer card

But....if you know me at all you know that I love things that sparkle and shine....(you're thinking, did she really have to say that--the world knows!). You will notice that when you sponged with the ink it looks really cool and "old," however, that did tone down the slight shine on the galvanized paper.  So I thought....let's shine it back up a bit. I painted the tin tile image with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint...and behold a lovely sparkly shine added a bit of zip to the card again... 10-8-18 card with shimmer paint

Here's a close up of the painted area. 10-8-18 Close up of shimmer paint

What a crappy picture!!!

What a crappy picture!!!  Yes, it is and I apologize for it even though I tried everything I could think of to capture the glimmer of these Stampin'Up! Shimmer paints....I probably should have ditched this post but the actual results are so gorgeous that I want to explain how to do it and I want you to try it so you can see the dazzle yourself.

There's a secret sauce that I'll explain in a bit but first I'll show you the 'raw' painted paper and then the card....if you can imagine this paper with a sheen and shimmer all over the surface you'll begin to imagine how gorgeous this turns out.... 3 paintsWhat you can get an impression of is  mix of Vegas Gold and Bright Copper---then over the top of this is an overall coating of Champagne Mist--this gives the entire piece that extra gorgeous sheen....which I admit you cannot see in this picture and no amount of maneuvering or changing of lights would capture what I want you to see.

Here's the resulting card

Card2Yes, it's a nice card but you have to imagine the sparkly glimmer and sheen of these shimmer paints...please come see the sample or ask me for a small sample and I'll mail one to you...it's got to be seen to be believed!!!
