I started by applying Silks Acrylic Glazes to a piece of pale blue shimmer CS. I thinned them with water and mixed in some iridescent medium -love that stuff! After everything dried, I stamped the Hampton Art collage with VersaFine Onyx Black, Let it dry, and painted the hydrangea and butterfly with watered down Silks.
I misted the card base with Psst Shimmer Spritz in both Sparkle and Gold, then mounted the shimmery purple die cut (SB Marvelous Squares) with a matching size piece of craft foam. I layered on the shimmery pale blue die cut, and finally mounted the focal on a matching foam square and attached it. Everything on this card is adhered with Sookwang tape.
There is no way the photo does this card justice. You just can't see all the shimmer! but I absolutely love the way this turned out!
As always, thanks for looking!
