WATCH FOR IT WEDNESDAY #42

Welcome to Watch for it Wednesday. For this technique I used two of my favorite Cottage Cutz dies along with Silver and Gold Arcylic Metallic Paint Dabbers. I cut out the die using white paper.
Next, I tapped the dabber over the die until I got the color I wanted. For the Cottage Cutz candelabra I used the gold dabber .
and for the Cottage Cutz basket of eggs, I used the silver dabber. This technique gives the dies a metallic look without having to buy the expensive speciality paper. The dabbers are easy to use with minimal to no mess and unlike a lot of paint, they dry very fast.
