A layout AND card!!!

Hey ladies! It's Karen with you today, bringing you a layout and card using the gorgeous Creative Inspirations Shimmer Paints. I am soooo in love with these! The amount of shimmer in each pot is unreal.

Here is a closeup of the piece I altered with the paints, it's a Dusty Attic chipboard chandelier. Look at the shimmer!! I coated the entire piece with Beige, then using my finger I dabbed some Chocolate and Antique Copper in some spots, to add a rusty feel to it.

Here are the colors I used on the above chippie. From left to right: Chocolate, Beige, and Antique Copper.

Now for my card, ok quite honestly I'm not huge on card making BUT I love how this one turned out. Used the scraps from the layout above.

For the sentiment, I basically painted the entire piece of cardstock with Carmel(one of my faves!)

Then also used the same color to accent some of the swirls in the paper.

I hope you enjoyed these projects and find inspiration within them.
Til next time....=)
