I really love to play with different techniques. This card shows one using shimmer and glimmer. Now, it is hard to get a great photo of the shine, so you have to take my word for it, but it is so fun in real life.
I made a shimmer spray with hairspray, pearl-ex and a bit of re-inker. I sprayed my cuttlebug folder with it before embossing it. The sparkle is subtle, but it is there. Look closely. I also used that spray concoction to paint my image. Ooooo, she's purdy! Try a little shimmer on your project. Such fun!
