Under the Sea...on my window
OK...confession time...whenever I get anything new, I have to use it immediately! If I get a new stamp, I ink it up and stamp it on a scrap paper just to see it! Same thing with products like Shimmerz. When I got my most recent order of Shimmerz and Blingz, I opened up every single jar and painted a blob onto a piece of cardstock just so I could see it right away!! Well...when I saw the new Under the Sea Blingz, I immediately though of the shades of blue and purple in hydrangeas. I adore these flowers!
For this card, I colored my image with Copic markers. On the flowers, I simply dotted a bit of violet and light blue marker on the flowers - I didn't color them all the way in, I just wanted a little bit of depth and shadow. Then I painted the Under the Sea Blingz over all the flowers! Wow!! I'm lovin' this color!!
I was really able to capture the sparkle of the Blingz in this photo below. Click on it to open a much larger view in a separate window - you can really see all the blues and purples reflect the light!
Thanks for letting me share with you - I'm really excited about these new colors. If you haven't had a chance to check them out, you can see them all on the new website!
