Shellie's Shimmer Ink Tutorial

Hello Everyone! It's Shellie from Craft Smashup. Today I have a short tutorial for you. 

Do you like the shimmer of the Gold and Silver Encore Inks but sometimes wish they had some added color?  While playing around with my inks sometime before Christmas, I discovered that you could get a wonderful mottled shimmery look and color all at once.

Here is my finished Card. At the end of the tutorial is a closeup of the sentiment and a color sample chart using 10 different colors, each with the Gold and Silver inks.

I love the color combination of Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana & Hello Honey
Stamp Set ~ Birthday Surprise
Accessories: Washi Tape, Gold 1/8" ribbon, Gold Encore Ink

You'll need to gather the following items...

Re-inkers, Metallic ink pad, baby wipes, stamp set

A nice close up view of the shimmer.

Overhead shot of the color chart. You can see how the gold and silver appear change the color of the ink.

Tried a picture at an angle in an attempt to make it easier to see the shimmer better

Thanks so much for stopping by! The team would love to see the cards you make using this technique. You can share pictures of them on our FaceBook fan page

Have a wonderful day :)
