Faux Shimmer Sheetz Revisited


The 02/08 TJNL uses the Aged Metal Technique I filmed, which uses Shimmer Sheetz. As an alternative to Shimmer Sheetz, Gerrie posted a tutorial she did to create Faux Shimmer Sheetz. This got me to thinking what else do I have on had that I can use to recreate the this look. While my faux sheetz do not have the same shimmer at the real sheetz - they still have a lovely shine to them.

To create my faux shimmer sheetz - I spread open a piece of saran wrap, then dabbed some Radiant Rain Mist Daubers onto the saran wrap. Flip the saran wrap ink side down onto your glossy card stock, smoosh, spreading the rain mist. Remove saran wrap, let dry. Now you're all set to finish your technique.

i'll have to try this - i too have been searching for just the right way to do this. i did try the technique gerrie used but was not happy with the look so i did it again without the acetate on top and that works pretty well too. gorgeous color on your card!
