Layering Colors with Shimmerz Paints

Hi there Shimmerz Fanz! Melissa stopping in today with a shabby chic card made by layering colors to give extra dimension and interest. And it's super easy!

Here are the Shimmerz Products I used to make it.

~  Cotton Candy and See Ya Latte' Spritz
~  Sweet Heart Vibez
~  Coffee Shimmerz
~  First Blush Inklingz

The first thing I did was "colored" my ribbon to give it time to dry. I first sprayed some seam binding ribbon with the See Ya Latte' Spritz. Leaving some of the white showing.

I then sprayed the ribbon with some of the Cotton Candy Spritz.

Both colors blend nicely together to give the ribbon a vintage look. Spray more color for a deeper look.

In your hand, scrunch up the ribbon into a ball and then set aside to dry. Takes 1-2 hours to dry completely. If you are in a hurry, you can dry it using a heat gun.

Next, using a dry brush or your finger add some of the Coffee Shimmerz to a white doily. Set aside to dry. It will only take a few minutes to dry.

Next, using some white flowers, spray a layer of the Cotton Candy Spritz. Next, a light layer of the Sweet Heart Vibez.

Then, again, a light layer of the See Ya Latte' Spritz. In this photo, you can see how the pink layers will dry lighter than when first sprayed. If you like them darker, keep adding layers until you reach your desired look. That's what is so great about these products, the more or less you add, the more different looks you can achieve.

After adhering the doily, ribbon and flowers to the card base, I went and added some First Blush Inklingz to the edges of the flowers for even more dimension and color. I used a simple water brush to add it.

I love these colors together. It gives the card a soft, romantic and vintage feel.

I hope you give these amazing products a try! There are so many colors and different textures of paints to blend together that the looks you can achieve are endless!
