Technique Tuesday -- Shimmer Spritz

Hi Everyone! Welcome back again to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday. I hope you had a good weekend and that you are ready to try a new technique. The technique I am showing today I will call Shimmer Spritz. It looks like a shimmery leather.

Supplies needed:
  1. white card stock
  2. shimmer sprays -- I used a blue, magenta and gold
  3. water spritzer
  4. heat tool
First spritz the card stock with water until covered and scrunch up the card stock into a ball.

Now open up the card stock and dry with a heat tool. If you want a more crinkled card stock, repeat the first step.

Now start spraying the shimmer sprays here and there on the card stock. You can heat the card stock once again with the heat tool to speed up drying time.

See how the gold sits in the crevices and adds a great shimmer? Here are a few other backgrounds I made.

I also used some flower dies to cut out flowers from the background to add to THIS card.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have fun with this technique! Have a wonderful day!
