I started by taking THIS stamp from Impression Obsession and stamping it on ivory cardstock with Momento Rich Brown ink. I knew that I wanted to try a really deep color, so I started by coloring my leaves first with watercolor pencils. When I was done, that's when I grabbed my Shimmerz and colored the leaves overtop with it. The result was a really deep color like I've never seen before! I used Royal Red, Rustic Red, Pumpkin, and Olive Green. When you look at my leaves straight on, you can't see the sparkle but turn it to the light... and BAM!
Here's a closeup....
To finish my card, I added a watercolor wash in places, antiqued the edges of my paper with some Antique Linen Distress Ink, some paper peircing and then my saying "To Everything There Is A Season" down the side of one of my mats with some Rich Brown Momento Ink. Add some ribbon, a button and you're done!
That's it for now! Hope your day Shimmerz!
