Nuvo Shimmer Powders & Stacked Diecuts with Kristina Werner
Hello, all! Kristina Werner here. I’m back with a fun idea for large greeting dies! I thought it would be fun to create simple watercolor backgrounds to go behind the new The Best Is Yet To Come and The World Needs dies from the Diecember 2019 release!
I used Nuvo Shimmer Powders to create the watercolor backgrounds. I used the colors Atlantis Burst and Violet Brocade. These powders are fun because no only do they activate with water, but there is a gorgeous shimmer powder included!
Before applying the powder, I wet the watercolor paper with clear water. Then I gently tapped the Shimmer Powder bottle so that small bits of powder applied to the surface of the watercolor paper. Immediately upon hitting the wet surface, the magic starts happening!
I used a more water from a Distress Sprayer bottle to make the colors move even more, and coaxed it to spread with a wet paint brush as well.
Once dry, the backgrounds have a gorgeous shimmer to them!
I ran The Best Is Yet to Come and The Word Needs dies through my diecutting machine four times using white cardstock. Then I stacked each diecut together and adhered them with Gina K Connect Glue.
After adhering the diecuts to the watercolor backgrounds, I added some 8mm and 5mm sequins from Darice.
I hope you enjoyed this simple card idea! You can pick up all the supplies at SimonSaysStamp.com. :)
