Hello (shaker card/galaxy background)

Hi y'all! 
Happy Wednesday, hope your week is going good?! :)

I'm sharing a 'just for fun' card that I was inspired by quite a few craft friends. ;) I've been seeing for a while now so many playing with alcohol inks and seeing the stunning results, that I wanted to try some things. But I don't own any alcohol what was I to do?...I could go buy a few inks and paper but was trying to use things that I already have. After some thinking, I thought I'd use some photo paper (the kind you use in your printer to print photos) and I would try using it with the Nuvo shimmer powders that I have. I didn't know if things would even work for me or what would the end result would be, but I gave it go. Has anyone even done this before?!?...

I think things look pretty good...yeah?!

To get my results, I spritzed some water onto the photo paper and then sprinkled on some shimmer powder here and there and then spritzed things a few more times. I did let things sit for a bit and even dabbed the the paper with a dry paper towel to soak up the remainder of the water on top. That's pretty much it. Now, I don't know how the alcohol inks look when dried on the paper?...but when things were dry, my only wish was it looked more glossy? (if that's even the word I'm looking for?). Things dried good, but maybe I should have sealed it with something?...just to give it more of a glossy/smoother look...this is what somewhat led me to doing a shaker. Probably something I'll play around with more. ;) Though, it's always fun to try new things, right?! :)

That's all for me.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and see you soon! :)
