I did get 2 cards made last night- at 1 am when I was supposed to go to work but they called to tell me I could stay home for the time being! Ok, now that you woke me up, I am going upstairs to make cards!
This is a sympathy card using a piece of alcohol inked background that happens to match Papertrey's new color, Scarlet Jewel. I smooshed the edges of the Scarlet Jewel with Versamark's Champagne to make it into shimmer paper- it looks great! I stamped the sentiment from With Sympathy(Papertrey) in Archival Ink Jet Black (it works the best on alcohol inks) then edged the piece with a gold Pilot pen. The card base is Papertrey's Lavender Moon.
When I put ink on chromkote paper, it gets hard to photograph without glare...sorry!
Here's a closeup of the 'shimmer' I got. I did another piece of Jewel by just pushing the ink pad gently onto the paper, and got a much less pronounced shimmer- coming soon to a card near you, lol!!
Be sure and click onto the photo and blow it up- then you can really see the shimmer better, I think-
