It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I want to show you how to use a stencil with some self-made glimmer mist paint.
For this card you will need a card base, outer mat, and inner mat. The inner mat needs to be somewhat dark for the shimmer to show up. And don’t forget the envelope.
The shimmer paint mist is done by getting a Stampin’ Spritzer and filling it about three quarters full with rubbing alcohol. I then dropped five drops of the Frost White Shimmer Paint in the tube and shook it (after putting the cap on). Then you place the stencil over the card stock and spray away. The alcohol dries faster than water so the card stock does not disintegrate.
The label was cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies. Before I punched the card stock out of the die I ran a stylus around the edge to give a slight border. I stamped the trees and sentiment from the latest Paper Pumpkin Kit. The trees were inked with Gray Granite but stamped off once. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Gray Ink. I then used Dimensionals to create depth for this card to stand out.
