Holly Jolly Release – SSS

I was so inspired (after my moment of fear!) with Tumbled Hexagon embossing folder from the Simon Says Stamp release! I ended up making quite a few cards!

This time I broke out my shimmer powders again and went to town! I used the colors Cherry Bomb, Lunar Rocket and Atlantis Burst. I think Atlantis burst is my new favorite color! Wanting to experiment some more, this time I taped one water color panel down and then left the other one up. I began shaking pigments (sparingly!) onto the card stock and then misted with water. I repeated the process until I achieved the desired look.

I found two dies, the Stylized Tulip and Laurel Leaves and cut them out of white card stock and added a couple of Simon’s reverse sentiments and viola! I LOVE how these backgrounds turned out.

Have you played with Shimmer powders? What is your favorite color?

This is the card that I did not tape down. The color is more muted and muddy.
This card I taped down. You can see the colors more individually without them running together.
