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.... What 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
Yes, 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!!!
