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.
