Shimmerz Flowers!

Flowers are one of my favorite embellishments to use on my cards and scrapbook pages. Back in November, my dear friend Kisa posted this awesome color chart where she painted white Prima flowers with different colors of Shimmerz. If you missed it, you can see her chart HERE.
My life hasn't been the same since then. I LOVE painting Primas. You can buy a huge container of white flowers and customize them to any color you want at a fraction of the cost of the fancy Primas. Here are a few projects that I've made using my own customized Primas:

For this card I painted white Primas with Pink Poinsettia Blingz...aren't they beautiful!

Here I used Gold Glimmer Blingz to paint the white Primas and the chipboard letters.

Here is a close-up of the flowers
For this card I colored the white Prima with a Prismacolor marker and then painted it with Sunflower ShimmerzThese are just a few examples of what you can do. The possibilities are endless! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by today!
