Sending some Shimmerz

Last week I made a few mixed media postcards for Scrapbook News and Review! What fun these were to make... loads of Shimmerz, scraps of papers, and a few of my favorite stamps... so I decided to make a couple more while I had all the perfect supplies out.

Here is the front of my postcard - the actual size is 4.5x 5.25 and requires only postcard postage to mail! (If you want to make larger ones, that would also be fun but you would need to plan on spending a bit more for postage fees.)

and here is the back...

To create these postcards, I used Coloringz in Lime in Da Coconut and My Bleeding Heart on top of the background paper. I then painted with Shimmerz in Key Lime and Aquamarine to blend all the colors together around the edges.  
The postcard below is the one that I made a video tutorial for... but you will have to click HERE to see it! But before you do that - make sure you pull out your favorite Shimmerz paints!!

I am hoping that someone soon opens up their mailbox and finds some happy, scrappy mail from me... :)
