A while back I've seen a tutorial where they color silver glimmer paper with dye inks using aqua painter. Perfect time to try that technique and see what kind of color I end up with. I already decided that my first card will be turquoise, so I went with turquoise ink. The end result was not a bright as I hoped for, at least now the ornaments are not silver. The cards as a whole are bright and festive. What do you think?
The second set of cards are green. I colored the silver glimmer paper with Gumball Green, a bright shade of green but the end result was very light green.
Without the coloring part, these are five-minute cards. I kept the same layout and got them done very quickly. And when I do quick cards like these it makes sense, for me, to do two since I already have another base card when I cut the first one. An 8.5" x 11" card stock will yield two standard size cards.
I really like how they turned out even though the ornament colors were on the light side. And if I have to pick a favorite I'd say the turquoise!
I hope you got some inspirations from today's post, the patterned papers did it for me.
Thanks for stopping by. Until the next post............... Cheers!!!
