What's Your Favorite "Neutral?"

When you look at the lightest colors of Shimmerz, you know that most of the time, these light colors are the ones we reach for to color over other things to add a bit of bling to our creations!

Well, you've heard about Pixie Dust Blingz and Angel Wings -- but did you ever think about Candlelight? It has an ivory cast to it but when you paint it on in a thin coat --- the ivory cast goes away and really brings out the color below and the sparkle is just too pretty for words! I think this color is underrated-- BIG TIME!

Above is a peek at a card I made recently using Candlelight on the flowers. When you look at it from a distance, you can't really see the shimmer and you would never think that I painted an ivory paint over top.

Look a bit closer and -- BAM! That sparkle is blinding and beautiful!

So, keep those Angel Wings and Pixie Dust jars close by, but every now and then -- you might just want to try my fave and have some crafting done by Candlelight! ;-)
