Just Add Ink #95 Bah Humbug - Season's Greetings

Hi there,
Today's post is for the Just Add Ink Challenge this week to create a Christmas project with NO Christmas Images and NO Christmas Paper, but you can use a Christmas Sentiment.  I decided to try colouring the new Silver Glimmer Paper after seeing a video by Mary Fish and Jill Olsen.  It was very easy to do and now I can have any colour I need for a project in the future.  I used black card to make the presents pop and it also appears to tone down the glimmer a little.  I did find you need to use Glue Dots to stick glimmer card on glimmer.

This card was featured on Paper Punch Addiction on 28th November, 2011.
Stamps:  S/U's Many Merry Messages
Card:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Bashful Blue, Versamark
Finishing Touches: Pearls, Crystal
Tools: Big Shot, Polka Dot EB Folder, 1 3/8" Square Punch, 1" Square Punch, 1/4" Round Punch, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, Heart Punch, Fiskars Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Embossing Buddy, Silver EB Powder, Heat Tool, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Glue, Aqua Painter
Thanks' for dropping in today.
