The color you see is the color you get!

Hello! Chris Dickinson here - bringing a fall card for your viewing pleasure!

 I used the Creative Inspiration Shimmer Paints to create this background. I placed a small amount of water in a container. Using my paint brush, I dipped the tip into the paint and swirled the Pumpkin paint into the water several times. I then dipped the tip into the Onyx paint and swirled that into the water several times. I then swirled the colors together and dipped white paper into the water to get a swirled background. Depending on the weight of your card stock, do not allow it to saturate too long or your card stock will pill.

I did not have the right color ribbon, so I decided to create the color I wanted by painting a 5/8" Cream Ribbon with the Pumpkin Shimmer Paints. So pretty - the ribbon was nice but now it SHIMMERS. It took about 15 minutes to dry, which allowed me plenty of time to stamp my card and work on the layout.

Here are some more details on my card:
Cardstock: White, Tangerine, Black
Accessories: Cream Ribbon, Buttons from SU Neutrals, Linen Thread

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!!!
