A Little Bit of Magic



I just received my Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Series Paper last night and had to try it out first thing this morning. This vintage patterned paper has a glossy design which you can magically reveal using the new Smooch Spritz, an Aqua Painter, or a brayer and some ink. The actual paper appears white with clear white glossy designs. The first card I made I used the Gold Glow Smooch Spritz, but when I took a picture of it you couldn't see all of the detail. It looks great in person, but doesn't show up well in a photo. So next I tried my brayer and Melon Mambo ink and as you can see it really stands out. The paper measures 12" x 12" so one sheet can really go a long way. This paper would also be great for scrapbooking.

Coloring Tip: I use my blender pen to pick up the color on my ink pad if I don't have the marker in the color I want for my project. It works great and you can make the color as light or dark as you want. I used the blender pen today on part of the wings for the fairy.
