It was the very first time I used Nuvo Glimmer Paste and I love it. It takes about 30 -60 minutes to dry completely and it provides spectacular results at first try. This product is easy to apply, it is flexible and once dry it doesn't crack, it is good for variety of crafts on paper, fabric, wood, metal, glass and it sparkles!!
It also can be hand-washed with cold water 78 hours after application in case you want to give it a try on fabric.
This time Tonic Studios required to " use all the products in the picture in a single monochromatic project", or at least that is what I understood! So my first thought was creating a simple background applying the mousse or the paste on the front panel and then create a shaker card.
Ok .. right ... At that point I only had used 1 of the products in the picture and the things already had a lot sparkle ! so I had to find out how to use the other products in the bundle.
I went ahead and I die cut some butterflies out of cardstock and acetate and play around with ideas but then as always I decided to keep it simple.
Then adding Nuvo drops on the butterflies was the easier solution. Voila.! I was done.
Once the paste was dry I run the panel though the big shot to die cut a heart shaped window and after doing this a couple of times the paste stay as nice as it was before. It didn't flatten or distort or change the shape.
Honesty the possibilities to use these products are endless.. all depends of the colours you use, how you mix them together to get new colours or accents, which stencils you use and also how you lay out different elements.
I usually send her a finished project and other half done so she or the demonstrator in the show can easily put all together if there is time and the sample is convenient for the show.
I hope you enjoy this very easy and simple project and get some inspiration to make a next generation of very unique and original cards using glimmer paste.. a lot colours to chose from.
