Casing Sara, Stampin' Up! CEO, and Sale-A-Bration glimmer paper

A while ago Sara, the Stampin' Up! CEO, shared a technique for a card that I loved.  Sara's card was all shimmery and pink, which was absolutely perfect for her Valentine creations.  As soon as I saw her card, I knew that I wanted to use the same technique, but for a dragonfly card using shades of green.

The starting point is shimmery white card, which even after being coloured retains its glorious shimmer.  Then put a few drops of reinker onto a clear block, mix with a few drops of water from an aqua painter...and paint!  I used (from top to bottom) Pool Party, Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay.  The colour is beautifully vibrant, and a little ink goes a long way so you can easily make multiple backgrounds.  It is important to let the ink dry thoroughly before adding the sentiment, and if you are in a hurry you can speed this process up by using a heat tool.

I have used the dies from the Dragonfly Dreams bundle to cut out two layers for the dragonfly.  The top filagree layer is cut from Mint Macaron cardstock allowing the solid sparkly layer behind to peek through.  This background layer is cut from the new Sale-A-Bration glimmer paper!  It is fabulous and you can choose it very soon.  To finish the tent folded card the dragonfly is set on top of a swirl of metallic thread. 

From February 21st there are three additional Sale-A-Bration rewards available when you spend £45 (before post and packing) - there are two new stamp sets and a pack of Glimmer Paper to choose from.  See them HERE

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you will try Sara's colouring technique...let me know which colour combination you use.    Happy crafting
