Vintage Butterfly Card with Melissa

Hi there Shimmerz Fans! Melissa stopping in today with a fun watercolor effect type of card. And all you need are some Shimmerz Products and your finger! :)

These are the Shimmerz Products I used to make this card:

               ~ Shimmerz Inklingz - Freshly Minted and Corney Flower Blue
               ~ Shimmerz Dazzlerz - Spun Sugar
               ~ Shimmerz Blingz - Pixie Dust

Using your finger, just rub some Freshly Minted and Corney Flower Blue Inklingz onto a piece of white cardstock. You can also use a brush or palette knife but you get more of a water color effect when you just spread it on with your finger.

Next, using a stencil, add some Spun Sugar Dazzlerz. I just placed the stencil randomly over the card front and using a palette knife, spread some of the Spun Sugar over the top of it.

After everything is dry, you can add some stamped vintage ephemera, pearls and flowers to dress it up. To give it even more shimmer and sparkle, I added some Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz to the flowers and die cut butterfly. The bottom layer of the butterfly was made the same way as the card front. I just die cut the butterfly when it was dry.

There are so many fun ways to use Shimmerz Products!! Don't forget, if you are on Instagram, use hashtag #ShimmerzPaints, so we can see your creations too! ;)

When placing your Shimmerz order, don't forget to mention my name, Melissa B. in the "Notes to Merchant" section when checking out with PayPal. You will receive a FREE Shimmerz Product in your order!

Hope you have a Shimmery Day!
