I saw a bottle of 'Iridescent Medium' in the fine arts section at Michaels one day and I wondered if you could use it to make your own shimmer paper and what do you know, you can! The red is actually Ruby Red cardstock with the iridescent medium brushed over it with a sponge brush. It dries quick and I really like how it turns out (I hope you can see the shimmer with the goofy angle I took the picture frin). I used SC86 on this card, but ended up reversing directions because I did the cuttlebug embossing folder border on the wrong side. DOH!
This was my first try making the shimmer paper, my next piece is Pink Pirouette that I embossed with my Cuttlebug - I REALLY like that one, but can't finish that card until tomorrow (It's a birthday card for a fellow Wizard of Oz fan with Glinda on the front - the glitter glue on her crown will take FOREVER to dry... sigh).
