This week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is to use SHIMMER, but NOT glitter or bling on your card. There are lots of ways to add shimmer: Sakura Stardust pens, Twinkling H2Os, pigment powders, Brilliance iridescent inks, eye shadow, shimmery cardstock, shimmery ribbon, and others I can't think of.
For my card, I used Twinkling H2Os to stamp the silhouette from Clear and Simple Stamps. First, I added water to the paint pot and got a nice, rich, thick paint mixed up. Then, using a bit of sponge, I dabbed the paint onto the stamp, and stamped it directly onto the paper. The result is a rich, shimmery color with a lovely unevenness (blotchy, but in a good way!).
Here's a close-up, but I'm not sure the shimmer comes through in the photo quite as well as in real life.
Now it's YOUR turn. Commit a little shimmer this week!
1. One layer is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half. No other layers of cardstock are permitted.
2. Use shimmer on your card in some way. Do not use glitter or rhinestones.
3. Upload your card somewhere on the internet and link to it using the InLinkz button on the sidebar to the right.
4. Most important of all: HAVE FUN!
