Just Add Ink #700 - Just Add Shimmer or Shine

It's time to add some sparkle to your crafty creations - if you even need an incentive, that is! Welcome to another Just Add Ink challenge - and not just any challenge, but our 700th!

Sooooooooo many possibilities for this one and I had so much fun playing with shimmery things that I ended up with two cards! Here's my first offering:

For my leafy parts I used mica stains which give shimmer and the stems are cut from shiny metallic card. I added more metallic accents with gold thread and a gold embossed sentiment.

Here's a pic to show the shimmer and shine a bit better:

Materials used:
  • stamps - Sentiment Strips 2 (Altenew)
  • card - black, gold metallic
  • dies - Artsy Leaves (Tim Holtz), stitched rectangle
  • other - distress mica stains, Dimensionals, Sidekick, splat box, gold thread, gold embossing powder, heat tool, craft foam

My second card also has plenty of shimmery goodness:

After ink blending the background I sprayed liberally with shimmer mist. The fish and corals were coloured using mica stains. Here's an angle shot to really show the shimmer:

Materials used:
  • stamps - Picture It Ocean (Clearly Besotted)
  • card - distress watercolour
  • dies - Coastal Escape View (Spellbinders), Nesting Splat (Paper Rose)
  • other - distress mica stains, white shimmer mist, blending brushes, Sidekick, splat box, Dimensionals, mounting foam tape, MISTI

Have fun creating some shimmery, shiny goodness and of course we'd love you to share them with us over on the Just Add Ink blog.

Thanks for calling in.
