The Dabbed Shimmers technique is from Technique Junkies, and it's a fun and easy technique. Just mix some distress reinkers with iridescent medium and then dab it onto your cardstock with a sponge. I used Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers distress inks for these shimmery strips. No two pieces ever come out the same, so it's fun to see what you end up with.
I stamped the butterfly and the kanji circle (from Art Neko's A407 Spring in Paris sheet) with Shaded Lilac distress ink and then cut them out with scissors. I affixed them to my card with foam tape so they have that extra dimension.
Have you seen the gorgeous stamps on the Spring in Paris sheet? I swooooooon every time I look at them. That Paris collage stamp is soooooo beautiful! I can't wait to ink that one up!
