Just Add Ink #280....Glimmer!

Lordy that week flew! I can't believe it's time to share our new Just Add Ink challenge already.  

This week it's all about the "SPARKLE" well "GLIMMER" to be more precise..:0) Our challenge this week is to "Just Add Glimmer" to your project....So easy and so many options.

I had just received my "Happy Patterns" masks from SU and had so many fun ideas l wanted to try, this was one of them.
I chose the mask l wanted to use and using a sponge and some good old PVA glue, l gently applied it to the card base, it literally took no time to dry as it's a really thin application. Don't forget to wash your mask ASAP as it will dry on there quickly too!
So l had my base, now for some "GLIMMER"...after trying a few different options, l finally settled for some elegant glimmer butterflies. 
I then created a matching box using This fab youtube tutorial from Papercraft Button.

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and be "Glimmer" inspired!

  1. PVA glue through a stencil is a new one to me Nikki but its looks fabulous - and I will just have to try it now! Love the black on black effect! And don't the butterflies just float and gleam above that expanse of black! xxx

  2. Wow! So elegant Nikki! I hadn't heard of using PVA either but the effect is stunning! The gold glimmer butterflies look wonderful against it and I adore the matching box you've made too! Thanks for suggesting such fun challenge. xo

  3. Wow Nikki, this set is fabulous! I have never heard of using PVA but the effect is awesome!

  4. Wow - perfect use of glimmer paper here Nikki! Your projects are so elegant and so striking!
