I have said it many times – I enjoy using dies even more than stamps! And with a bit of “basic” inks and tools, you can give them a more realistic, dimensional look. You can use Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink (SSS | HA) and white pencil to add highlights to the die cut edges, along with details with a Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen. It is easy to do – watch the video for the details!
Here are the cards from my video along with the main products featured. For the full supply list, scroll down to the thumbnails at the end of this post.
