This is my new favorite technique, learned from a card posted by Pamage! Unfortunately, you have to see this card in person to see it shimmer!
Leaves focal point created by taking shimmery white CS, DTPing gable green all over, then DTP touches of green galore, then covering with the Lime Green petal point chalk ink. Leaf shadows stamped in green galore and then leaves stamped in basic black. This one is textured and shimmery in real life!

Gorgeous masculine feel to this card. I bet it is just stunning IRL!

I LOVE this! How exactly did you "cover" with the green chalk ink? Just smear it all over or did you "pounce" it? This really is a great design and I love that it can be used for a masculine card (I have a hard time with that). TFS!
