A Shimmery Spring!

Don't you just love the Spring? I love all the beautiful colors! The pink tulips, the grass getting greener, the pale blue skies! And why not give all those beautiful colors some shimmer too? There are so many beautiful colors of Shimmerz in shades of pinks, greens, blues, yellows and the list goes on! But there is also my favorite Angel Wings! It gives a pretty shimmer to any project!

Here is a card I made today for a challenge to use the color Green. I covered a Colorblok Flower shaped mini Chipboard album with some patterned paper by SEI. (I love to use Mini Albums as the base for my cards! So fun!!) I used some stamps by Imaginisce and the Welcome Sign is by Provo Craft. I colored in the stamped image with some Copics and then added some Angel Wings Shimmerz over it! (Tip: I use a waterbrush, minus the water, to add my Shimmerz. It has a nice pointy brush and is easy to apply Shimmerz wherever I want!)

In this photo you can see the shimmer it adds and how the image just glistens!!

And you can also mix different Shimmerz colors together! I had made this little Bird House to display in my home for Valentine's Day. The little birdie on it was part of a pick I purchased at Michael's. It was originally white. I added some Hottie Pink Blingz to it. And when that was dry, I added some Pink Poinsettia Blingz over that for even more added color and shimmer! I also applied some Pink Poinsettia Blingz to the cardstock Tag.
Here is a closer look at the birdie!!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!!
