October Is Breast Cancer Care Awareness Month

So bring out the Pink Shimmerz paints! Make anything with your Pink Shimmerz this month, post it in the Shimmerz Paints Flickr group and you could win a pot of Shimmerz.

When you post it in Flickr let us know which Shimmerz you have used and tag it Pink! Each of the DT will be picking their favourite so there are lots of chances to win.

But whilst you are at it don’t forget to post it on your blog to spread the word about Breast Cancer Care Awareness Month 🙂

I have a pink card for you today, it uses a bit of the My Mind’s Eye Laundry Line paper, Prima Crystals and a touch of sewing.

I’ve used my Shimmerz Spritz to make the background paper and the flower.

I sprayed card with Bed of Roses and let it dry. I then sprayed a new sheet of card with Licorice Spritz and used a brayer wrapped in rubber bands to ‘score’ patterns in the Licorice covered card and transfer the Licorice colour in rough lines to the Bed of Roses covered card (you might have to click on the photo to see the full effect).

Then I cut out flower shapes from this card and distressed it to make a flower.

The brad in the middle is a large crystal gem brad that was a touch too bright so I dipped it into Shimmerz paints Coal and carefully wiped most of it off so that it just left a ‘smoked’ gem effect.

The cute Paper MakeUp Stamp Shaela Fairy was coloured with Copic markers and the wings painted with Shimmerz Paints Flashee Fushia Blingz and Angel Wings (also available from Quixotic Paperie).

    This is gorgeous sweetie, your such a clever and patient lil thing, i never would have thought to wrap bands around a brayer then inking to add texture and interest to the pink shimmered card, i would have stuck with plain pink!! It is super gorgeous though and just shows that it is the little touches that make the differences between an ok card or a fantabulous one (yours is now officially fantabulous by the way!!)
