i FINALLY got some studio time thanks to my FABULOUS hubby - he took on Pezzy the wonder tot for the day! then tonight she is going to play next door so we can go out to dinner - Outback bloomin' onion here i come!

My card uses these challenges for inspiration:

Splitcoast Stampers - Sketch (SC270)
Cuttlebug Spot - Green
Crafty Creations - Monochrome
Paperplay - Just Because
Twisted Thursday - Green
Stamp Something - Girly

and here is my card:

i have had this stamp on my table to use for awhile but i can't remember where i got it - quite possibly from Molly - our wonderful CI creator - she surprised me with a box full of stamps one dy - i about DIED y'all! i put each of the mini panels throguh my cuttlebug to give them some extra oomph without being overpowering. the little flowers are primes i have had forever and all of the little pearls are the AMAZING Viva Decor Pearl Pens. These are hard to find in the US right now but that should be changing this spring!

i stamped my main image on watercolor paper with black Archival Ink (it is waterproof - my memento bled) and then i sprayed the paper well with water in a mini mister to moisten it up. then i simply wet my brush and dipped it into my gorgeous shimmering pots of Inspirations paints and painted them on. i love the way these paints give so much bang with little effort!

here i used the following colors:
Mellow Yellow
Pink Highlight

So what do you think???? if you LOVE to shimmer you MUST check out these paints!!!
