Shimmering solution

I bought some gorgeous shimmery white cardstock for a song at a resale shop.  The first card I attempted to make using it got ruined, as the ink will not dry on it....... My solution:

 I colored on the stamp and using my Misti : )  stamped the image. Next, I cleaned the stamp and applied Versamark. I embossed the image- you can use clear EP or Stardust.

 If the color is too pale, and you have used clear EP, you can color right on the EP and then reheat it : )

Here is my final card:

  Image is Michael Strong and Sentiment Creste with TLC.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is just beautiful. Love the soft look and so happy that you were able to figure out how to do your stamping on that shimmery paper.

So very beautiful!! I don't know if I could stamp any more without my MISTI! It solves so many problems!!

Great score on that shimmer paper!

An excellent solution! Isn't the Misti so handy for techniques like this? Your final result was just beautiful, and what a great score on the shimmer paper if you got a good price! TFS and appreciate the tips too.
