SCACD bling

blog tag
Suzanne asked the SCACD DT to use bling on our creations this week – like that was a challenge hee heee! i am ALWAYS up for some bling! my bling of choice for this round is Creative Inspirations paints created by my friend Molly. i helped her out with the initial testing and fell IN LOVE WITH THEM!
as soon as i saw the Atlantia stamp by Elisabeth Bell i knew i wanted to try this technique with her. i began by putting the card base together using the gorgeous Basic Grey Wisteria papers.

look what happens when you tilt the card – the shimmer is just deeLISH!
i stamped Atlantia in versamark and embossed her with clear embossing powder on shimmery white cardstock (it has a coating to it that makes this work better.) then i misted the piece heavily with water. next i added aquamarine, sunshine & olive green CI paints randomly across the image with a water brush and just let the colors thin out and run in the water.
i propped it up & let it dry and love the free flowing shimmering effect!
i hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!!!
