More Fun with the WI. If you read my post yesterday, you will have seen one of the cards I made with the ladies at a local Women’s Institute last week. Today I am bringing you the second card we made. As with yesterday’s card, I had done some preparation before the event. I had embossed the Seasonal Wreath and punched the Glimmer Paper with the new Sprigs Punch from the Joyous Noel Suite. We were then going to add some of the amazing Shimmer Paint!
The embossed image was brought to life by adding a very small amount of the Bright Copper and Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint from the Autumn Winter Catalogue. Layering the Vegas Gold over the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint gives an amazing ‘shot’ taffeta effect. It is one of the occasions when more really is more. Two colours are better than just one. BUT the key is to not add too much of either Shimmer Paint. You only want to pick up the raised areas, so a gentle touch with a Sponge Dauber is all that is needed. The Sprigs are added with mini glue dots as is the bow. The bow covers all the ends of the sprigs, so it looks nice and tidy.
The ladies for the WI were brilliant at this card and loved the final effect that they got with the Shimmer Paint. It really is the most amazing product. There is so much you can do with it. And a little goes a very long way, so don’t add too much to anything!
Although I made this into an Autumn Card by using a Harvest sentiment, it would be very easy to make this into a Christmas Card just by changing the sentiment. You may want to change the colours too, but the basic design is perfect for Autumn or Christmas.
