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!
