A Natural Shimmer

I made this last week while stamping with my friend Peggy.  We decided to play with glimmer mists.   I love  the the effects that can be achieved with these!  You always get a different look depending on the colors you mix,  and you can use just about anything as a mask to create designs on the paper.

This time though, instead of masking i used the resist emboss technique to get my pattern on the paper.  I stamped the floral sprigs in Versamark on Fabriano watercolor paper, then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Next I sprayed randomly with Tattered Angels Glimmer mists in Daffodil, Cinnamon and Coffee Shop.   A quick wipe over the embossed areas, to get them clean and it’s done.  In real life, this background shimmers beautifully.   It’s hard to capture that on camera.

I really like the organic feel of this card, what do you think?


I took the mojo monday challenge #73 for the sketch, used the top note that Peggy gave me for the main image, layered over More Mustard and Chocolate chip.   The ribbon is a shimmery copper, and I’ve added copper colored gems for the accent.  The sprig on the main image is inked in both So Saffron and in Walnut Stain.  All stamps are from Basic Grey All Natural.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card.  I have not been posting as often as I usually do, but it’s for good reasons.  So please be patient with me, and I’ll soon have some surprises coming your way!  After all, I have a lot to celebrate, but it wouldn’t be any fun without you!!

Thanks for stopping by,  you know I love your company!!  If you have any questions or comments, I invite you to share them here.
