When extra drops are a good thing.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! In this case today it’s an extra drop but that’s details.

When using Shimmery Crystal Effects I stamp as usual. Color maybe a little on the project. And then decide to do a final step to bring my project to the next level. I add Shimmery Crystal Effects. Sometimes it’s a thin layer or a few drops for effect and other times it’s a thick coat to protect what is underneath.

Either way I am always tempted to touch with my fingertip to see if it is dry. So who wants a fingerprint in their finished project? I certainly don’t. But inevitably I end up with my swirls in that top layer regardless.

So here’s how to fix that. When you are done with your project take your scrap mat and do the same thickness of a drop on your paper. That way when you’re tempted to see if it is dry you do it on the “extra” drop. If you put a fingerprint in that layer it’s on your scratch paper. You haven’t put that extra touch of handmade to your final project.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
