Today I played. *smile* I don't have any finished cards to show you, but I would like you to see some amazing "handmade paper" I created. My plan is to incorporate these into cards within the next couple weeks.
It was hard to get good photos of my play results because what you see is affected by how the light hits it. If you look at them from one angle, they look like pretty watercolored backgrounds. When the light hits them just right, though, you can see some incredible shimmer.
Sherrill Graff and Shirley Munoz came up with this technique. Sherrill recently shared it with the Stampin' Up! Late Night Stampers group. (Are you a member yet? If not, why not?? You're missing out on a lot of good stuff!)
These papers were made using water, reinkers, and an iridescent medium similar to the Shimmer Paints found in the new Holiday Mini catalog.
Stay tuned to see what projects I create with these mini works of art! Even thought I have a few ideas rattling up there in my brain, even I can't say for sure what will happen next!
