Shimmer sheets are 5x12 sheets of mylar ... they come in iridescent and metallic colours. They can be embossed, sanded, inked, or used as is. I made a few samples ... take a look !
|Here's the first piece of shimmer sheet after I ran it through an embossing folder ... I can use it like this ... and I did. But there are other things you can do .|
|You can send the embossed design ... it will remove the colour , leaving a white pattern and making the design pop !!|
|Now get ready to ink ... another option. You must use a solvent based ink like Stazon or Archival ink. After all, mylar is plastic !|
|Inked ... a whole 'nother look !!|
|The finished card ... I used the plain embossed sheet and flipped it over to have the opposite design.|
Just a note ... the butterfly is cut with an Elizabeth's Die ... cute !!
|Another colour ... another embossing folder.|
|Love this colour ! Left to right ... embossed, sanded, inked.|
|Love this one too !! Same thing ... l-r ... embossed, sanded, inked.|
|Lots of beautiful colours.|
