Adding special touches to Cards and Tags!

Hello Shimmerz Fans! It is that time of year that I like to have a few cards and tags on hand…and I love to add a little bit of mixed media to them. That is my special touch on them!. First up I have a cute celebration card. I have added a wee bit of masking in the background with some Dazzlerz and a few drops of some Spritz. The bird chippy is finished with some gesso and a spray of Truffle Spritz.

My favourite part of this card is the metal pieces.  All I did was paint them with some Magenta and Orange Sherbert Shimmerz, heat set and make them bubble a bit…so yummy!

Next I have a Winter Wishes card. It is a collage card of bits and pieces in the background.

I added some drips of Mama Sings the Blues Coloringz and touches of Patina Texturez.

This little card is super cute and I love odd shaped cards!

I added some masking in the background with some Spun Sugar Dazzlerz and a few drips of Mon Shari Coloringz.

Tags are also so much fun to make and perfect on if you have a wine gift.

I did some masking in the background with some Spun Sugar Dazzlerz, added some Mama Sings the Blues Coloringz and look at that tree is covered with some Tidy Widy Texturez…love that little tree!
