I used some of the new Paste-eez and Acritonez as well as some Coloringz, Vibez, Inklingz and Creameez. I used an old credit card to smudge some paste over the stencil, and I used some plastic packaging, a brush, my finger...a little bit of everything! I embellished with some bits and pieces from an old Hip Kit, including some exclusive die cuts and stickers. I also fussy cut some flowers from a Simple Stories paper, some Crate Paper rubber charms, some wood veneer and a Freckled Fawn puffy word sticker.
To get this beautiful and colorful background, I used some washi tape to hold the stencil to the background paper. Since the inner pieces are so thin, I had to apply all the Shimmerz very carefully so I wouldn't tear them. I mixed and match so many of the colors. I also added some splattering. Here you can see how gorgeous the colors look together. This is a mix of Paste-eez Raspberry Sherbet & Hold the Mustard as well as Acritonez Pinkadelic, Coloringz Pretty in Pink, Mandarin Mai Tai, Vibez Sweetheart and Inklingz Beets Me.
I used lots of blues and aquas including Acritonez Blue My Top, Coloringz Well Blue Me Down & Heidi Ho Blue, Vibez Snow Way Man, Inklingz Me & Blue and Blue Lagoon. I used a few of the Hip Kit Project Life cards as layers behind my photo and then layered the flowers around the edges. I also added some fun foam under it for dimension as well as some tangled thread.
I just love how this turned out! I made sure to let the pinks dry first before coming in with the blues. You can see how the blue stands out on top of the pink. That's because I let it dry before mixing.
I love how easily the Shimmerz products blend and work together. The pastes blend with the acrylics, and they blend with the liquids as well. You can't beat that :)
Here's one more close up of the photo area. The dimension here turned out really nice. I love the shadowing it creates!
