Poppy Parade Glimmer Paper

Here's a card I designed for my good friend's birthday. I wanted to experiment a little more with the technique of coloring the silver glimmer paper. It's really easy to do. You just squirt a few drops of a classic ink refill onto a plastic lid, dip your aqua painter into it and "paint" your silver glimmer paper. The color will lighten a little as it dries. It's best to let it air dry. If you blot it you will lose a lot of the color. You can speed up the drying time with your heat tool or the microwave (about 30-50 seconds). I didn't have any poppy parade ink refill, so I used tango tangerine and that seemed close enough for me.
