Glitzy Birthday Card with Beck BT

Hi Everyone, I am SO excited to be here with my very first post as part of the Shimmerz Design team!  Whilst I love to create Scrapbook pages I adore making cards as well and it is actually how I got into papercrafting.  I am looking forward to sharing with you some of my card creations and hopefully inspire you to get a little of your 'Mixed media' on with your own cards!

For my card today I enjoyed playing with a few different yummy Shimmerz products:
Shimmerz Texturez - Tidy White
Shimmerz Dazzlers - Coral me Crazy
Shimmerz Inklingz - She packs punch
Shimmerz Creameez - Get Glowing

I used them in various ways and I'll share on that in the close up pictures below
I used the Tidy White Texturez to stencil the beautiful delicate pattern into the background.  I just love the added texture to quite fine stenciled lines

Using the 'Coral me Crazy' Dazzlers I added some extra glitz to the card with large dots stenciled into the background - so yummy!

  I added splatter to the background using 'Get Glowing' Creameez as a bit of a contrast to the die cut. 

I added a little splatter using a paint brush with the 'She packs punch' inklingz to the vellum die cut.  

I highlighted the decorative die cut (Spellbinders 'Decorative labels one') vellum piece with the matching plain labels die (Spellbinders labels one) adhered with vellum spray and stamped my sentiment with permanent black ink (StazOn Jet Black) so it pops off the card.  

 To add a little more interest and dimension to the splatter, I added some tiny pearls randomly 

 Thanks so much for heading over to the blog today to check out my project!  I hope I've inspired you and shown you how lovely a little mixed media can be on your sweet cards.

Till next time
xxxBeck BT
