How to Color Silver Glimmer Paper

Yesterday I showed a birthday card with the silver glimmer paper that was colored midnight muse.  I wanted to tell you how to do this.  It's very simple but such a WOW technique.
You start with the silver glimmer paper.  With the ink refill place some drops in the ink pad of the same color.  I used midnight muse.  With a sponge dauber pick up some ink and start dabbing onto the glimmer paper.  Add as much or as little ink as you feel gets the effect you want.  Be ready to get messy with this technique though.  Make sure your work surface is covered before attempting this as well.  You might want to use the heat embossing tool to set the ink because it could take AWHILE to dry.  But how cool does this look and the possibilities it presents!! 
I just love how you can add bling and have it match whatever color project you are working on just by using our Silver Glimmer Paper 124005 $4.95 2 sheets of 12" x 12", ink refill $2.95 and sponge daubers 102892 $10.95 for 12 daubers!  So simple but WOW that is cool!!
