Fab Friday #4-- Somebody's watching me!

Hello- and happy Friday! Our focus this week over at Sisters in Stamping was the new Shimmer Paint in the Holiday Mini Catalog. The original idea came from Cindy Garbe and Jodie Schmidt, I took the idea and tweaked it a bit, here is what I came up with:

ooooooo Spooky! I used the Shimmer Paint 2 ways.... 1st- I used the paint directly on the Happy Halloween stamp using a sponge dauber. 2nd- I used the technique called Polished Stone with reinkers and Shimmer Paint. I have taught this technique a couple of times over the years using pigment metallic reinkers and the ink never dries on glossy cardstock.....well, the most fantastic thing about the Shimmer Paint is that it dried! I still have to walk over to it every once in awhile and touch it to make sure.

SU! Product used:

Stamp sets: House of Haunts (pg.22- IB&C 2009-10), Holiday Blitz (pg.44- IB&C 2009-10). Accessories: Platinum Shimmer Paint (#116808), Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. Paper: Lovely Lilac, Basic Black, Glossy cardstock. Ink: Stazon black, Lovely Lilac reinker, Basic Black reinker.

Next week we are using Big Shot Pop-up dies, until then.
