Hello everyone have you all had a good weekend? Our class went well yesterday it was good to see everyone and the cake went down a treat. I had a few emails for the recipe so I am sharing it with you all . I used a Thermomix recipe but I am sure you can adapt it and use with a regular mixer it will just take you a little longer that’s all. You can find the recipe HERE.
The card I am sharing with you today features a a technique showcased at Convention by the gorgeous Pam Morgan. Pam is the VP of Demonstrator Services working at the Home Office in Utah but at the same time she is also an active demonstrator. A lady with a great sense of humour and a big heart much loved by every demonstrator that has the pleasure of meeting her including yours truly. I count myself as one of her biggest fans and I know she reads many of the demonstrators blogs so Pam if you are reading this I’ll collect my payment for the glowing reviews next year in Utah *wink*
Back to the card, I copied Pam’s card almost entirely
Aren’t those butterflies cute? They were punched out from silver glimmer paper. Sorry what was that? they are not silver? oh sorry no, no they are not!! you are quite right Pam showed us how to colour glimmer paper to ensure you have sparkle in every colour you can possibly wish for. And I have the quickest mini tutorial ever for you.
First you punch out a flutter using the Butterfly punch from Silver Glimmer Paper, fill an aquapainter with some Isopropyl alcohol (I keep a brush just for this).
Add a little drop of reinker in your chosen colour to the centre of the flutter then using your aquapainter move the ink all over the surface, the result? A perfect looking sweet flutter with coloured wings :)
I get asked a lot about where can they buy Isopropyl Alcohol known in the US as rubbing alcohol, I buy mine from that well known auction site but some chemists will stock it too especially private ones. Mixed with our Shimmer Paint it makes the most gorgeous Shimmer Spray as well, watch this video HERE where I explain how to make your own.
Here’s a closer look of my little sweet flutters, don’t they look cute on the chevron background? I love this embossing folder
Thank you so much for stopping by hope you liked my Pam inspired card, till next time BIG HUGS XXX
