Melissa here with you today and I’m sharing a card using the June Aquarelle Kit. For this card, I wanted to highlight the awesome Shimmerz Dazzlers you can get as an add-on from the shop. This stuff is so much fun! It’s, essentially, modeling paste that already has the color and lovely sheen to it.
I googled some ideas on how to use it. I loved what I found and definitely wanted to translate it to the smaller scale of a card. Here is the full photo:
I just love how the Dazzlers give this card a little “oomph” for the background.
What I did was super simple – I used a mask that I had in my stash and smoothed the dazzlers over it with a palette knife. I was careful to not leave it took think but still have enough dimension. I also love the messy look in which it seems as if I scraped off some of the Dazzlers off.
It didn’t take long to dry so, I was able to complete this card rather quickly. At least, quickly when I think of how long modeling paste can normally take to dry!
While it was drying, I begin to layer the top part of my card. I used bits and pieces from the patterned paper, the vellum and die cuts. I even broke out the sewing machine and added a little bit of stitching.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
I hope you enjoyed this card today. And, I hope you get a chance to go dig around in the shop for add-ons. While June is winding down, I know many of you are just now digging in to those June kits. Don’t forget to use up the scraps to make a few fun cards, too!
I’ll be back next week with another card and the fabulous Dazzlers!!!
