Snowfall Thinlits dies are now on sale to the public, as well as White Velvet paper. Oh and ah…. the paper is dreamy! It’s really pretty as is but why not add color? Today my project shares a White Velvet paper coloring technique that’s easy, fun and gives unique results. Grab your Stampin’ Spritzer and let’s get started!

Adding color to Velvet paper
I can’t resist touching the White Velvet paper and neither can my family, lol. The kids want to even rub it on their faces and hubby as well. Today I share a coloring method that will keep the texture intact, yet lend color to the flocking of the paper.
You will need a protected work surface (I use freezer paper), White Velvet paper precut into the size for your project, a Stampin’ Spritzer, Balmy Blue ink refill and Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.
- Fill the Spritzer half way with alcohol, then add a large drip of Frost White Shimmer Paint and one drop of Balmy Blue ink refill.
- Replace the nozzle/pump and give it good shake to mix the fluids. If you would like a darker blue, add another drop of ink refill until the color you like appears.
- Fill the Spritzer with more alcohol until it nears the top, give it another shake.
- Mist the White Velvet paper until the desired color appears.
- Allow the paper to dry completely before adding it to your project.
