Good morning! I’m back again today with another project using Shimmerz paints! Today, I decided to use the paints in a more traditional manner, painting one of my many flower stamps and adding shading and dimension.
I started by stamping and die cutting the lovely new Anemone Wishes that was recently released by The Ton. I heat embossed the stamp using gold embossing powder, then began watercoloring the pretty blooms using Pink-a-Boo Inklingz, Berry Hot, Pining For You, and Lettuce Get Together Creameez, and Sugar Plum and Blue Grass Shimmerz paints from the Shimmerz product line. I was quite happy with the amount of depth that I was able to achieve with just a few of the paints!
I didn’t want to detract too much from the pretty, shimmery floral die cut, so I used a leafy background stencil with some Hero Arts Mint Julep ink and my Clarity Stencil Brushes to blend some soft green foliage on the card base. (I’m not sure why it’s photographing quite so neon… it’s much softer in real life!) I popped up the floral die cut using some dimensional adhesive on my card base, then nestled a sentiment strip using a sentiment from The Ton’s new Summer Blooms set at the bottom of the bouquet. I sprinkled a few sequins around the edge, and that was that!
Well, that’s it today! I hope you’re enjoying seeing the fruits of my explorations with these fun paints! Have a marvelous day, friends!
