Fabulous Find - Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam

My latest Fabulous Find are 2 new products by Tattered Angels - Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam. Like the other Tattered Angels products that we all love like the Glimmer Mists and the Glimmer Screens, these products are equally shimmery and easy to use!

Let me show you how to create an interesting tag shown below using the Glimmer Glam and Glaze.

Supplies:  Tag (cut from an Emboss and Cut Cuttlebug folder - Sandy has these in the store but you need to email her for the item); EK Success border punch; Imaginesce HollyBerry Stamp; Copic pens; random button from my stash and papers (not sure of the source!)

Start with a tray or use your Tim Holtz mat or a discarded yogurt tin. Pour in about 1 tsp of the Glimmer Glam and in another discarded yogurt tin, pour about 1 tsp of the Glimmer Glaze into it. It is very easy to apply the Glam and Glaze using a dollar store sponge (cut up into 1" cubes) or even easier, some crumpled up wax paper, yes, wax paper!

Using either a crumpled piece of wax paper or the sponge, randomly dab on the GLAM to the tag.

Then spray the GLAM-med tag with some glimmer MIST. Notice how the MIST beads up on the GLAM? That is because the GLAM is resisting the MIST. You could also apply the GLAZE on the GLAM too, if you wanted!

After the MIST-ed and GLAM-med tag dries, apply some GLAZE in the embossed areas and on the edges. The GLAZE helps define the embossing and accents the edges of the tag.

If you want the GLAZE to be a predominant colour, let it dry fully. If you prefer a sheer-er look, dab off some of the GLAZE.

Voila! An interesting tag to adorn a present for a special someone!

I hope you will show me some of your projects too!
