Stamping tip: How to colour your Forever Gold Laser-Cut paper

The Forever Gold Laser-Cut Speciality Paper pack has some really fun and glamorous elements in very shiny gold.

I do love them but I have to confess I’m not a huge user of bling, so I was keen to explore other options. This week I have several tips for using these fabulous elements, looking beyond the obvious.

For starters, the back is white, which gives you a crisp effect, but how about colouring them? The surface is shiny, so your water-based inks and markers won’t work, but it CAN be done. All you need are some Stampin’ Blends.

I made a short video to show this technique. To get an ombre effect, I used three shades of green: Light Granny Apple Green, Light Old Olive and Dark Old Olive. What do you think?
