On this last day of the old year, when things might seem to be winding down in a dull way…I thought I’d add some gold mist metallic sparkle and shine with my project and nudge us into the new year on a good foot!
Gold Mist Metallic Shaker cards
A few weeks back I shared some new gold watercolor paints with you…in a couple comments, people mentioned their hope that I had saved the water that I used. Well of course I had already done so, and spent a few weeks “reducing” the water to increase the proportion of shimmer in the water. (I show how I did that in the video.) And now that it’s all been reduced and put into a mister, I’m here with a video for you! You can watch below, or click HERE to watch it in HD on YouTube.
Isn’t that just THE coolest? The paint set might be a little pricey, but you get use out of not only a little paint to make something shimmer – you get to use the water too! Here are stills of all that shimmer and shine.
It was a little challenging to adhere this second one; I carefully added more stamp runner adhesive to the back, wiping off a few spots where it peeked out of the x’s and o’s. I followed that up by sticking the insides of the o’s back into their places – all worth the effort in the long run!
Just LOOK at all that gold mist metallic shine. Mmmmm!
And in other huge news….guess who reposted my squirrel? I don’t think I’ve ever had thousands of likes in an hour! Wheeeeeeeeeee………
I’ll be back tomorrow, not with a video – but with my top 14 cards from the past year! It might take me all day today to figure it out and put the post together but I’m excited to crunch numbers and find out what was most popular! Be sure to pop on by. I’ll have a special treat tomorrow too!
Gold mist metallic anything has got to be on everyone’s love-to-create list!
