Shimmer and Sparkle

It is time for a new Rubbernecker Stamp Company Blog Challenge.

This week is hosted by none other than the queen of collage: Shelly Kuck!!  You can get all the details (and see Shelly's cool card by going: HERE.

Now you know you have bling, or shimmer, or glitter--somewhere in your lets get a holiday card done and play!!

Here is my "play":

rbc10-Shimmery Silent Night

(note: the oval is not off kilter--I am just a bad photographer)

I got the technique used on this card from Colleen Schaan, on her Technique Tuesday segment of her blog.  She calls it Painting Pearls.  It is super easy.  On dark paper, stamp with VersaMark (or other watermark/embossing pad), clear emboss, and then paint with water and perfect pearls.  You end up with a resist.    I think this technique was made for this stamp!!!

Materials used:
