SC241:Princess Isabella shimmers!

blog tag

good MORNING!  i have a VERY exciting project for ya today – not only is it my first Princess Isabella card it also features more of the Inspirations shimmering paints i was asked to test out! 


what…test out something with super shimmer power?  how could i say no!  do those look DEE lish or what!?!?!?!  but more on the paints in a minute!

SC241 close up

my card uses the SCS sketch241 for today – i really loved this one!  i used the cutting outside the box trick with my nesties so Isa’s little music notes stick out a bit.  her hair and skin are done with copics and most of the rest came from my scrap pile – the papers and ribbons.  i wanted her eyes to have some sparkle and did those with my chocolate spica pen.

i have been doing a lot of crocheting while i watch pez in the yard – such an easy thing to grab and take with me.  i like the intricate fancy patterns so i use size 20 thread and a tiny hook to keep their size reasonable!





i wanted to try and give you a good glimpse of the shimmer in the Inspirations paints.  i used 4 colors on Isa – turquoise, sky blue, bright yellow and white frost.   Two really cool things about these paints – the colors are VERY vibrant and they stay mixed – no seperating of the ingredients.  they are also vibrant and still sheer so the detail lines of my stamp can show through.  i hope to do more experimenting with these soon!  they are not available for purchase YET but very very soon!  just a few minor details being worked out and i will be sure to pass on the details!


and now i am off – i promised tot ake pezzy to the park before it gets too hideous out!

be sure and let me know what you think of Isa AND the cool new paints!

have a fabby day!
