Shimmer Spritz Decorative Cardstock By April Williams

This is a great way to create lovely decorative cardstock to use for backgrounds or die cuts.  It is called Shimmer Spritz and it gives your cardstock a shimmery leather look.


Supplies needed:

  1. White Cardstock
  2. Shimmer Sprays (Blue, Magenta, and Gold were used on this sample).
  3. Water Spritzer
  4. Heat Tool


First spritz the card stock with water until it is covered. 


Then scrunch up the card stock into a ball.


Now open up the cardstock and dry with a heat tool.  If you want a more crinkled cardstock, repeat the first step.


Now start spraying the shimmer sprays here and there on the cardstock.  Once again, you can heat the cardstock with the heat tool to speed up drying time.


See how the gold sits in the crevices and adds a great shimmer?


Here are a few other backgrounds samples.


You can also use this with dies.  Here are some die cut flowers...
