How do you?

Make things appear shiny on a page? I have this egg basket that I got for the hybrid challenge and I'm really loving it, but when I printed it up, it lost some of it's lustre and I would really like to make it kind of shiny again. Any ideas?

I don't know how you could shine up printed images? I'd love to hear too. when I printed off my hybrid Easter door hanger I noticed the same thing, but then again, I'm so used to paper scrapbooking that maybe that's just it? Add some embellies and I think that'll bring a little shine in.

I might be able to add some but I'd much rather have it shiny again. Would stickles work? I basically just need clear paint. Although I'm pretty sure that employees at Michaels would look at me weird if I said that.

You could dry some clear or maybe sparkly embossing powder. Run a clear versa mark over the picture and then sprinkle a little powder on there and heat it up. It might work.

Angie, that's brilliant. It will be difficult because I can't just run it over the whole picture, just the eggs is what I want shined, but I could try to do it with a paper towel. Thanks.
