Artygirlz Challenge # 37 - Paint!!




This is the first time I have done an Artygirlz challenge - couldn't resist it this week - I get to use my Cosmic Shimmer Paints!!! For the background I dampened my sponge and coated the card with the lovely Cosmic Shimmers which are acrylic water based paints, they are great to use. I used three different colours building them up, they give off such a nice sheen. The stamped image is from After Midnight, I coloured it with chalk ,added my flowers, ribbon and acrylic buttons. The ribbon is so summery and has sun flowers all over it.

Oooooh, I saw those paints @ Craftaway this morning when I was shopping!! Bought some glimmer mist and stuff, but I may get some of those next time. Your card is fab and you can see the shimmer! Thanks for sharing the technique too!
Glad you like the Tote - I'm so chuffed with it! If I thought they'd sell, I'd make a few and put them in my Ebid Store! The biggest problem is pricing, as always!
