Shimmering Away

Hi all, hope you had good weekends. I’m excited because my blog candy closes at 5pm (BST) today and I have a surprise for all those who have played along. The grand draw will be tomorrow and I will let you in on the surprise then as well!

I’ll leave you with a shimmering Shimmerz card today. You might recognise the embossing folder? I’ve made some background papers using my Shimmerz paints (teal, Sky blue, sugar plum and Under the sea Blingz). Embossed the foreground sheet, painted over the embossing with the Sugar plum Shimmerz then cut into panels. The flower is made from Shimmerz coloured papers, netting and organza cut out with my nesties and distressed.

Look at the shine when the card catches the light:

For all you scrapbookers there is a National Scrapbooking Day Event going on over at the Shimmerz blog with some special offers and prizes.

Colouring – Shimmerz Paints (Teal, Sky Blue, Sugar plum); Blingz Paint (Under the Sea)
Usual Suspects – paper trimmer; double-sided tape; glue dots
Other – Basic grey paper; cuttlebug; embossing folder; nesties; netting; organza; brad; Distressing tools
