This weekend the E-Team was challenged to play with new product from Tattered Angels. I personally, LOVE the glimmer mists and was very excited for the chance to play with the Chalk, Glam and Glimmer Glaze.
Quick details: You have until July 17th to leave a comment on each of the team member blogs for a chance to win one of three prizes. Two winners will be randomly selected from the E-Team blogs to win a $25 voucher from eclectic Paperie. One winner will be randomly chosen from the eP blog to win new Tattered Angels mist assortment and some other goodies.
One of my favorite techniques utilizing Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist is with the Wrinkle Free Distress technique. I swipe my Distress Inks in a random pattern on my Craft Sheet, but! Instead of misting with water, I mist with the Glimmer Mist. I love how it just gives a soft shimmer versus a "in your face" sparkle.
This gave me the idea to use various Glimmer Mists on my craft sheet versus Distress Inks. I randomly spritzed different Mists onto my sheet and then gave the overall puddles a misting of Glimmer Mist Pearl (my FAVORITE Glimmer mist!!). I then layed my card stock in the puddles, repeating until I got the look I wanted. The result was a mottled design paper with a soft shimmer. IN LOVE!! You'll be seeing this version of the Wrinkle Free Distress more often!!
I actually went back and added more Hay Ride glimmer glam along the edges of the flower and leaves and to the wings of the butterfly after these photos.
I wish I could get the shimmer to show in the photo, but with the Glossy Accents over the stamped image Time Flies (from Unity Stamp/Marah Johnson Itty Bitty line, with some selective masking to fit my project), it was hard to get an angle that didn't glare! All the papers used for the background, flower (created with the Chalkboard/Glimmer combo), leaves and butterfly are from the various papers I created with my combinations.
I painted one of Wendy Vecchi's Art Part Pocket Watches with some acrylic Antique Gold. I then coated the frame heavily with Glimmer Mist Antique Brass. LOVELY!
