When pencils are paintbrushes and aqua painters become ink pads.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! I’m sure you are reading this headline and wondering if I am stuck on Wacky Wednesday. To answer your question…nope. I know what I am doing. Trust me on this one.

So today I am asking you to shake up your shimmer paint and dip your pencil in the lid to get those flower centers. To get the purple centers I lightly dipped my stylus into my ink pad. Remember the word lightly, please.

I also took an aqua painter filled 3/4 of the way with rubbing alcohol and dripped about 8 drops of shimmer paint into the barrel. I capped it tightly and gently shook the pen until all was mixed. I uncapped away from my card stock and then squeezed the barrel until I had my wet shimmer paint coming out. I then brushed it on to the stamp (Floral Essence, out on June 4) and stamped away to create my background.

Remember to cut almost double the ribbon you need with the copper trim so you can stretch it to make it look like a net.

Here’s the cards…

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
