Stamp Happens 'Shimmerz' Review

Tonya has asked the Design Team to do a product review for Shimmerz....



Tonya sent me the colour Apricot .... And this is what I wrote for my review....

Normally I love to use Shimmerz, I find it the perfect thing to give that "something special" to a card or a project. But unfortunately with the Apricot Shimmerz I was left feeling a little disappointed.
After trying a few different techniques, I think the best way to work with Apricot Shimmerz is to use a base colour underneath. Either coloured card stock or by colouring in your image first with pencils or Copics. I also found that you only need to use a few layers because a lot still won't help make the colour darker or bring out the shine of the Shimmerz any better.
Personally, I found this particular Shimmerz hard to work with and because I like using vibrant colours I found this colour to be a bit insipid. Mainly because the colour is so light.
But, on the other hand, if you are just after a subtle hint of colour and shine, Apricot Shimmerz might be the perfect thing for you.

Ok... So I did a sample and made a card with this particular Shimmerz....




I stamped a flower and then coloured it with my peach Prisma Pencil before I layered the Shimmerz on and with the close up hopefully you can see the Apricot Shimmerz...



Then I made this card and used the Shimmerz on the flower petals.



And this is the result of using the Apricot Shimmerz....

As I said I like Shimmerz...But just not this colour personally...
If you are interested in using Shimmerz...Please feel free to go on over to
