Stamp & Create Product Spotlight ~ Week #2 Shimmerz

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 076 

Happy Monday! Today the children have another Ped day which means that they are all home with me today. Not really a recipe for me to get much done craft-wise! LOL! Today I am really excited to show you my card using this adorable CC Designs image which I paired with DP from one of the new Basic Grey pads.

I used the amazing sketch that I found at the Card Patterns Challenge and also used the recipe of “DP, Ribbon, Bow & Tags” which was the challenge at Stamp Something.

I colored up the image with my Copic Sketch markers and then masked the image and airbrushed using my Copic ABS. I used two different colors to airbrush. I love the look that this gives. I used YG00 which I sprayed around the image itself and then I used BG10 which I sprayed around the edges of my cardstock, working my way into the center.

The button is a Basic grey clear button and I just traced around it on some DP and made my own matching embellie! The bow was made with my bow-easy… of the best (and cheapest) investments for my crafting needs. The final touch was to use Shimmerz. This is always the little extra touch that gives big results! It is hard to capture just how pretty it is  IRL with photos. I took another one at a different angle to show you more of the effect:

Gorgeous card, love the colours you've chosen, and the ribbon has just finished it off. I think I need to invest in a bow easy as it is so hard to make one look as nice as yours x
