Shimmery Birthday

Happy Tuesday and I hope you are staying healthy and well during this strange time we are all going through.
Today I’m over on the Shimmerz Paints Blog sharing a couple of cards I made for the Shimmerz Spring Forward Challenge. The challenge is all about making a layout or card WITHOUT using PATTERNED PAPER!!
I love making background for my cards and here are a couple of ways you can get the look for pattern paper but by making your own.

For my first card, I started with some cardstock. I put a little of the Spun Sugar Dazzlerz paste on my craft mat and added Jeni B Bleu Vibez to give it a blue tint. I spread the Dazzlerz through the stencil and waited for it to dry. I love this sparkly paste and how easy it is to add fun colors to it for different looks.
Once it was dry, I used Cotton Candy Spritz and sprayed it on the background and wiped off the excess. The Dazzlers acts as a resist to the spray and has both shine and texture on the background.

I finished my card with a die cut sentiment and some sequins and a Butterfly Beauties Dotz for some added fun!

For my next card, I wanted to see how the Vibez and Spritz would react with photo paper.

I started with a layer of Glorious Day Vibez and let it dry and then added a layer of Jeni B Bleu. I ran the paper through my die cutting machine with a Reverse Confetti Stitched Circles cover plate one it was dry. I then add a layer of Cotton Candy to add a little pink to my background.

Since the photo paper has a layer of plastic, you can really see the spray marks which adds a fun texture. I added a die cut sentiment, some sequins and another set of Dotz for some added fun.
