Tips

  • Use a fine tip paint brush which is dry
  • Use only a small amount of Shimmer Paint. You can always add more
  • Use this technique for Christmas or Winter cards

On this card, my brush was too wide so I couldn’t get fine detail so make sure you use a fine tip, dry brush for this technique.

Try other colours. I’ve used Frost White on Shaded Spruce which is stamped on Crumb Cake. Try adding some Champagne Mist if you stamp ion Whisper White or Shimmery White or even some Bright Copper or Vegas Gold would work well on both the Crumb Cake and the two white cardstocks.
