Blendabilities Meets Glimmer Paper

Day 3 of our Blendabilities week.  I'm teaming up with my friend Kim to bring you the best of Blendabilities!!  After you're done here, head to Kim's blog and see what she has in store for you.  Today, I'm loving all the sparkle on this card.  Now you didn't really think I'd go a whole week without using glitter did you? :)  I'm totally in love with our new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper!!  It's beautiful on it's own but look at the amazing color you get when you color them with Blendabilities!!!  So pretty!!!  Now, I will caution you, that this technique isn't the best technique for your markers.  The glimmer paper is rough and lots of coloring on it could tear your marker tips.  If you plan to do a lot of coloring on rough surfaces such as glimmer paper I would suggest getting a set of markers specifically for that purpose and another set for coloring.  At only $11.95 it's easy to do!  For this card I used the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities. 
There's soooooo much glimmer on this card it's crazy!!!  I cut the glimmer paper into strips the smallest is 3/4 inches, the middle is 1 inch the largest one is 1 1/4 inches.  It doesn't take a lot of ink to color them, and unlike dying your glimmer paper with our reinkers the Blendabilities dries almost instantly!!!  The glimmer paper adds so much interest to the card that I didn't think it needed a whole lot more so I just added a quick greeting and some ribbon.  So pretty!!!
Here's a quick look at a few other colors on glimmer paper.  I did the light, medium and dark with all the colors.  Most of them go dark to light except for the blue on the end it goes light to dark.  Not sure what happened there :)  Starting on the top left and going clockwise we have Smoky Slate, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana.  They're all beautiful!!
Now it's time to head over to Kim's blog and see what she has in store for you today! Make sure to check back here tomorrow for another Blendabilities inspired project. Don't forget to shop now for your Blendabilities!!!
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!

OK, now THIS is awesome! Beautiful and one question. Do you recommend a light touch when you do this, or does it require a heavier hand to get the color down into those glitters. :-) Just gorgeous Ruth!
