Just a little Shimmerz card ...

Hello, Shimmerz Paints fans! 

Sandi Clarkson here with you today sharing my first Shimmerz "play" 
... which actually evolved from simply playing around with some of the new paint colors! I was curious how the colors would look on some watercolor cardstock I had on hand.

First, I stamped the floral portion of the "Simply Enjoy" stamp set with some black archival ink and then began to play with Going Peach Side, highlighting with Limoncello and a white gelato from my stash. 

When I was satisfied with the look, I began coloring the stems and leaves with Olive U Truly, It's Mint to Be and Green Olive.  For highlighting, I hit a few places with more of the Limoncello.

The background of the card was colorized with a very diluted wash of Pool Me Close which looks so amazing here! To blend everything, I spattered with the Pool Me Close and the Green Olive.  For added dimension, I painted the edges of the card with Going Peach Side and blended it heavily in toward the center. 

Just a little close-up of the stamped images. 

Lastly, I decided to add a ribbon, a stamped banner (motto from Simply Enjoy stamp set) and some adhesive backed pearls for texture and added dimension. 

Just a quick little experiment before I start my first Shimmerz layout! Be sure to include my name SANDI on your Shimmerz order for a little free product gift! 

Thanks for coming by today. 
Things have been extra busy around my house lately but I hope to get crafty again soon!
