One of my many favorite techniques with Shimmerz is to paint patterned paper to give it a new look and a new color! I love this Basic Grey paper but I wanted it a bit more green, not so pink….so I pulled out my Celery Shimmerz and painted it! I actually painted both pieces of patterned paper that I used on this card so they would match each other. I just love the subtle color and shine the Shimmerz gives the paper! I used a Basic Grey Urban Prairie rub-on on white paper for the main image and then sponged with Certainly Celery ink all around it to make the paper green.
I hope you can see the difference between the original colored patterned paper and the Shimmerz painted piece in this picture. I know you can’t see the shimmer in these photos, but what I really wanted to show was the soft color change Shimmerz also gives.
