    Step 1

    Step 2

    To achieve this all I do is remove the sprayer off the bottle. Then from 8 or 9 inches above the paper drip some Colorations onto the paper. By doing it from that high up you achieve more splatters.

    Step 3

    Then I just let it sit to dry. If I am in a hurry, I will use a heat gun.

    Step 4

    Using the Meridian stencil I added some corners to the paper. I used Sorbet in Parakeet for two corners and Ferrari on the other two.

    Step 5

    Step 6

    And added some Minx Shimmering Inks (coming out in January) to the leaves.

    Step 7

    Shake the bottle very well. Remove the dropper and then use a brush to add the Minx to the leaves.

    Step 8

    Look at the Shimmer that the Minx achieves!!!!

    Step 9

    I used the Minx in Bankroll for the Holly. The one on the left is the Holly with Minx.

    Step 10

    I removed the dropper from the bottle. Put my brush in the Minx and stirred well. Then I painted the Minx onto the flowers.

    Step 11

    I just love the Shimmer that the Minx create!

    Step 12

    Minx Shimmering Inks will be released in January at CHA

    Step 13

    I had a watercolor paper tag that I added Minx in Bankroll to. Only to half of the tag.

    Step 14

    Then I added some Minx in Indulgence

    Step 15

    moved it around until both colors kinda blended together .

    Step 16

    And this is what it looked like. Then I used a heat gun to dry it.

    Step 17

    Using Metal Effects in Gold and the Soliloquy stencil I added the word LOVE to the tag.

    Step 18

    I use Colorations to edge papers instead of ink pads.

    Step 19

    I simply spray a small amount on my craft mat and run the edges of the paper over it.
