Hello and welcome to the Hero Arts blog! Janette here with you today to share about the ease of Glimmer Inks on dark cardstock.
Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Inks are fast drying, loaded with pigment, easily diluted with water and super fun to work with. They are sold in packs of 2 coordinating colors. At this time there are four sets available, Green & Red, Copper & Bronze, and for this project I used the Purple & Blue set, and Pewter from a pack combined with gold.
To create this card apply a wash of blue and purple Glimmer Metallic Ink to heavyweight black cardstock (I used 100lb). Add water to move the ink creating interest, fade the edges and add splatters. The paper will likely warp, and that is okay. More dabbing and splattering, less scrubbing. Wet cardstock will pill without caution. With panel only slightly damp, splatter with Pewter Glimmer Metallic Ink for a strong star-like look.
Liberally wet white watercolor paper. Dab several dots of Pewter letting the color move and bloom replicating the look of our moon. I prefer to let mine dry naturally, but a heat tool works as well.
Once completely dry, flatten panels with a clothes iron or laminator. I always protect my project by sliding it between a folded sheet of clean copy paper.
Die cut Cloudy Moon Fancy Die into inked black cardstock. Pop black panel with dimensional adhesive over white moon panel. White heat emboss Autumn Moon sentiment, add a silver glitter paper highlight, and adhere to card.
