Bold, Little, Blossoms!

I am totally, and completely, hooked on making my own embellishments using Shimmerz Paints! Lately, I have been on a kick, making all kinds of acrylic blossoms - and customizing them with bold colored Shimmerz Coloringz and I thought I would show a few of them off today.

Here's the first! Using Lime in Da Coconut for the most color, but also using a bit of Razzel Dazzel Berry for some contrast, I soaked these blossoms with the Coloringz and then set them upside down to really distribute the color.


Next, I thought even though I am not a purple person, that these would look amazing in Mon Shari Coloringz...


and then I did some in a combination of My Bleeding Heart and Pink Stiletto for yet another set...


The acrylic that I used was Clear Scraps, which is so easy to heat set and manipulate into the right shape - and then all you have to do is give them the WOW! factor by bringing on the Shimmerz!!!
