Well…as promised…I’m back with another fab technique. This is the first time I have tried this and I have to say it’s something that I am going to use over and over again. It’s much easier than I thought it would be and I know you will love the result. Why not give it a go?
- Pour a small amount of Frost White Shimmer Paint on to a paper plate.
- With a piece of loosely screwed up cling wrap, apply paint to glossy white card stock. Allow to dry.
- Using a brayer and ink pad (I used real red), roll colour onto the brayer and then roll over the cardstock until you get the desired shade of colour.
- In a circular motion, rub a cotton wool ball over the card to remove excess ink.
There you have it. Your own hand-made card stock.
I’ve used my shimmery card to make the hearts on this sweet valentine’s card and I’ve entered it into this week’s Less is More Challenge. It’s been a while since I have gone back to basics and think this sketch is simply stylish so I thought I’d give it a go.
And here is the sketch
