Altering Mirror Card Stock

Hello everyone!  Betsy here today showing you how you can alter your mirror card stock to give it a completely different look!  Sometimes we want just a little bit of drama on an otherwise very plain background.  To start I took a piece of satin mirror card stock and cut it to A2 size.


I added Blender Solution first, then started adding drops of purple ink onto my surface.  I kept playing with it.  I was using the blower tool from Ranger.

At this point I set it aside to dry.  I then cut a piece of silver mirror card stock and instead of the blower tool, I used the square ink blender tool.  I first applied the Black ink to the tool.

I just add drops of black ink to the felt piece on the blender tool and pounced it onto the surface.  Then I kept adding Blender Solution to the felt pad.  I really like the way this patterns onto the surface.

 I liked this so much better than the purple panel I created, so I went back and used the ink blending tool on the purple panel as well.  Because I used lots of Blending Solution, I knew that I could press foil onto the surface before it was completely dry.

These panels can be used for die cuts and they would look stunning.  On my completed card I used gold foil and used the panel as my background.  Using the black on silver mirror card stock almost has a smoked effect!

I hope I’ve inspired you to give this a try!
