My Niece, My Friend by Carrie Ferrier
Anyone who knows me knows I'm a lover of white cardstock. Well, my new "love" is taking my love of white cardstock and dressing it up with Shimmerz Spritz and Vibez! Holy Cow, this was fun!
I used a combo of Spritz Treasured Hymn, Spritz Tuscan Sun, and Spritz Vibez Hot Fudge to soften and warm up my white cardstock background.
My funky little flowers were fun. I used Pearlz Emerald Isle and Shimmerz Green Olive paints for my flower colors. On a separate sheet of scrap white cardstock, I simply painted 7 "blobs" of color and let them dry. While they were drying, I freehand cut a small funky flower shape out of cardstock for my template. When the 7 blobs of color were dried, I turned the painted scrap of cardstock over, traced my flower shape on the back side of each "blob" and cut them out. I distressed my flowers by simply by folding them in a tight ball and then unfolded them.
I painted my lace with Shimmerz Butter Cream paint to warm it up a little.
I realized as I was making my little flowers, that the possibilities are endless when making handmade flowers using my paints! Totally hooked on my Shimmerz!!!!
