For this project, I wanted to design something that took advantage of the nice metallic finish of this heat transfer vinyl. I’m a big fan of geometric designs and animal designs so I decided to try combining them! I drew up this image in Photoshop and converted it to an SVG file to be used with my Cricut! Since Shimmer HTV is such a thin material, I recommend setting your Cricut to Paper Plus for cutting.
I decided to use Craft Perfect HTV for the majority of this design and to use the Shimmer as an overlay.
Since Shimmer requires a cold peel, I made sure to let my garment cool before removing the carrier sheet. I was so excited to show off this tank to the world after it was finished!
This vinyl is super ideal for a subtle look and can add such a cool effect to any of your designs. After working with it I started thinking up all sorts of great ideas for future uses for Shimmer! What are some of your ideas? I’d love to hear them! Drop us a message here, on our Facebook or Instagram, we love hearing what you have to say!
Until next time!
