Some Valentine Shimmer & a winner!!

good morning!!

i was finally able to get out of the house after all the snow so Pezzy and I did a little retail therapy to cure the snow induced cabin fever! i started out with a budget but.......oh well! it's the thought that counts right? Pezzy wanted a rare trip out to toys r us which was great because it meant i could take a little rare detour to AC Moore - and oh did i stock up!! and so did Pezzy!

so what do I have for you today? a second card done with the technique i showed you using Inspirations Paints for stamping as well as another fun background technique for you to try plus a winner!

so let's start with the winner dontcha think?? chose #33 which is RebbeccaG. YAY!!!! you will need to contact - marti {at} pezadoodle {dot} com and claim your prize - be sure to browse the website first and pick out your 5 new colors!!!!!!!

now another project with a little how to for ya:
I saw this background technique for shimmering paint in the latest issue of Technique Junkies newsletter - an INVALUABLE resource BTW. My hert is stamped using the dabber technique with the Inspiration Paints - they work SO WELL for this - perfect detail still shows through! i mounted it on a base shape i cut fron the FOrever Young cricut cartridge and used a strip of SEI Juliette papers across the middle. finished it off with a few glittered skittles!


It was incredibly difficult to get the abundance of shimmer to show up well on camera but the hert and the background are both magnificent! for the background i put a line of Inspirations paint down on my craft sheet (about 1" long). then i placed a drop of Pebble reinker on one end and a drop of cranberry reinker on the other end right on top of the shimmer paint. then i simply took a sponge and dabbed into the paint mixture and then randomly onto my cardstock - easy peasy! i ran the piece through my cuttlebug before adhering it to my cardfront. i am anxious to experiment with more color combos to see what i can come up with! who wants to join me????

well OUR LUCKY WINNER RebeccaG will start us off!!

as for the rest of you - pick up a few pots for yourself - easter is around the corner and those eggs need some SHIMMER!!!

What else do i have for you? well you will notice the previous post by Molly announced an additional design team search - so if you REALLY love to play with shimmer and want to help us spread the word about these incredible paints see THIS POST for all the details!!
