Coloring with Shimmer Spray Tutorial

Hi there, it's Dianascarlett today with a little tutorial how to color your images with shimmer spray.

Here is what you are going to need:
A cardstock
Clear embossing powder
Stamp of your choice ( I have used Susan Nicoll, Antique Rose)
And Shimmer Spray of your choice (I have used Maya Road)

Here we go!

Stamp your image and emboss

Spritz Shimmer spray on transperency sheet.
Here are some tips:
Shimmer sprays tend to settle to the bottom of the bottle quickly so make sure you shake them up before sraying.
 Paint rose using shimmer sprays and paintbrush.
Paint the rose and leaves with the lightest colors first (If you have at hand, I did not) and then go back to add darker colors.

And here is what I did with my colored Rose.

Hope you enjoy it, I would like to hear feedback from you!

Shabby Paper Rose Tutorial

Hi, this is a quick tutorial to show you how to make a shabby paper rose you can use to embellish your cards, layouts etc using some basic craft supplies. Here's what you need:

A piece of patterned paper (I've used Anna Griffin Paper)
Strong glue (I used glossy accents type glue)
Glitter Glue
Distress Ink (Optional - that's why it's not in the photo)

Firstly tear your paper all the way around the edge, the continue by making a square spiral into the centre of the paper...

Now spritz lighty (don't over moisten) your paper...

Whilst the paper is moist scrunch it up like this...

Now start with the longest edge (this is outside edge of your paper where you began tearing) and twist the paper whilst starting to make a spiral to form the rose. Make sure you hold the paper securely in the centre...

Continue until you have completed the process with all the paper...

Glue the end of the paper at the back of your rose, making sure it's stuck well. The turn over your rose and glue underneath the other layers so that the flower holds together...

If you wish you can use a little Distress Ink to give your rose a more shabby look, I like this effect...

Finally add glitter glue to finish. I have also added a button and some twine but this is purely down to taste...

Here is my rose on my finished card...

The papers and tag on my card are from Prima, the paper I used for my rose is from Anna Griffin. I also used Ranger Distress Ink & Stickles, all these products are available from A Scrap Affair. Hope this tutorial will come in handy!
