Queen of Hearts

Good morning! It's Holly posting today. Have you created your Valentine's cards yet? Here is a departure from the traditional red and white Valentines.

I colored the bear with Copic markers first, and then I used Pink Highlights, Tutu Pink, Blush, and Chocolate paints on the crown, the scepter, and the robe. I painted the chipboard hearts with Chocolate and Blush. Then I wanted a wee bit more shimmer on my card, so I sponged Pink Highlights paint on the pink designer paper background. Can you see the shimmer in the picture below?

I love how the background paper shimmers just from sponging the pale pink paint all over it. It dried within minutes and putting this card together was a breeze. Why don't you try that with your next card? Just pick a pale color of Creative Inspirations Paint, shake it up, dip your sponge into it, and swipe it all over your designer paper. You will love the shimmer! :-)
