Video: Using Metallic Ink Sprays on Dahlia Blossoms

by Erum Tasneem

Hello!

Erum here with a watercolor card. Today, I will be watercoloring with the Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays using the Dahlia Blossoms Stamp Set. I have done this previously several times, you can find three such examples here, here and here.

Next, I used Ocean Waves and Lavender Fields Metallic Shimmer Inks Sprays to color my images. You can watch the process video at the end of this post, but I will give you a quick explanation here as well.

After I was done with the watercoloring, I fussy cut the images and moved onto the card front.
