After I created the rainbow I was reminded of a quote that I heard years ago that I just love..
I don't think I'm alone when I tell you that I am dying for SPRING!! I can't wait for the bulbs, the flowering trees, the warm air and especially the sunshine. Bring it! On the subject of Spring, I've been inspired lately by rainbows and butterflies. I created the cloud effect on these projects with a cloud template, a stipple brush and Blingz paint in Under The Sea. I was also itching to use buttons... a whole lot of buttons!!
Just look at how shimmery the Under The Sea Blingz is!
Blingz have a ton of glitter mixed into the paint!
"As a child I was told and I believed that there was a treasure buried beneath every rainbow. I believed it so much that I have been unsuccessfully chasing rainbows most of my life. I wonder why no one ever told me that the rainbow and the treasure were both within me." -Gerald G. Jampolsky, MD
I love this quote so I printed it out on some vellum paper and added it under the rainbow.
I also tried this technique on some cards. Here is one of them:
I did the stipple brush with the cloud template again on the white cardstock with Under The Sea Blingz. For the butterflies, I used a bunch of the new Coloringz. They are so bright! I used Pink Stiletto, My Bleeding Heart, Mandarin Mai Tai, No Yoking, Lime In Da Coconut and Mama Sings The Blues. I gave them all a bit of shimmer with Goldie Lox Shimmeringz, except for the red one (My Bleeding Heart) I used Heavy Metal on that one. Also on the blue butterfly I added a little of the Under The Sea Blingz with my stipple brush.
Thanks for stopping by the Shimmerz blog today!
