My Regional Swap – 13 November

I didn’t have a clue what to make, for a Swap,  for this year’s Regional event. Over the past 2 years, I have made little cards & bookmarks – this year was I after something different.

I actually made a card front.  Thanks to be my new friend – Bertie – The Big Shot (that name just popped into my head) – made my job alot easier.

I used the Vintage Wallpaper &/or Polka Dot Embossing Folders, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Basic Pearls, Glossy Cardstock, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Stampin’ Pastels, Elegant Eggplant & Very Vanilla cardstock – & Because I Care Stamp Set. Phew!

There’s the outcome!

The technique I used was called Shimmery Pastels.

Here is what you do:-

With your glossy cardstock, dab some (already shaken) shimmer paint over the glossy cardstock, using Glad Wrap. To quicken up the process – use your Heat Tool to dry it. Then using a dauber or sponge, dab into your Pastels & then onto the shimmery glossy cardstock.

The card definitely looks better in real life.

Thanks for visiting!
