A Good Day

Hi friends! Today I'm popping int to share another Shimmerz Paints card creation with you. It's been hot and sunny here in Idaho, so I was inspired to pull out some yellows and make a summery card. Since this gorgeous new Butterfly Blossoms set from Reverse Confetti had just arrived in my mailbox, I just had to get it inky!

After flipping through my Shimmerz swatches, I decided on a palette of yellows and blues with a hint of green to watercolor this beautiful butterfly floral image. I stamped the images in jet black amalgam ink and then got to the business of watercoloring. The colors I used were Winter's Mist, Ultra Marine, Celery, Bumbly Bee, Pumpkin, and Coal Shimmerz. I then accented these colors with Lil' Yellow Skool Bus and Well Blue Me Down Coloringz, Deep Blue Sea Vibez and Bamboo Leaf Spritz. I love how shimmery it looks!


After I had painted both the butterfly and the floral image, I  die cut the butterfly with the coordinating Butterfly Blossoms confetti cuts and fussy cut the flowers to pop up on foam tape for some dimension, then accented with a few rhinestones.

The background is done using the wet on wet technique with Bumbly Bee, Lil' Yellow Skool Bus, and Pumpkin. A few splatters, a fun sentiment from the new Sentimental Sayings set,  and some holeless sequins finish off the card.

As always, if I've inspired you to do a little shopping in the Shimmerz shop, be sure to put my name in the order comments at a checkout for a free mini surprise!
