Another Glimmer Mist Technique

Ok, so I have already shown you all the basic glimmer mist technique with glimmer screens. Today I am going to do it a little bit different. Instead of the glimmer mist being around the glimmer screen we want the image of the glimmer screen to be in glimmer mist. Basically, we are stamping using our glimmer screens. You can also use brass templates for this technique.

To start off, grab your glimmer screen/template and make sure you have something behind that is ok to get spray on.


Then spray the glimmer mist/ink on the screen. This technique is really pretty when you use multiple colors. I used three different colors.

Then you want to pick it up, and turn it over face down on your paper.


Tip: With glimmer mist, you can use your heat gun to help it dry quicker.

And then if your paper is curled you may want to place it under a heavy book for a little bit to flatten it or you can adhere another sheet of cardstock behind it to help keep it flattened.

I ended up adding some rub-on's, some words, and a frame to my paper to make this card:

Hope you give it a try. It really is fun. And you should be able to use just about any kind of template and any kind of ink. I just love Glimmer Mist.

I love what you did with the owl on the layout in your scroll. I have one that I rubbed on white paper than changed my mind about what to do with him. Going to try your glimmer mist technique and get him on a lo. Thanks for sharing.
