I was playing around yesterday with some Sheena floral stamps and Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders and ended up with this card - would you believe it the challenge this week on Sunday Stamper is to use embossing powders, how lucky is that? Mind you this is nothing like as adventurous as the work Hels produces so take a look at her wonderful blog to see what she made this week - stunning!! I started by stamping the flowers using Versamark and a blue EP onto some scraps of Tim Holtz vintage shabby paper. These were then painted over lightly with some shimmer paint, then cut out ready to arrange onto the background. These Shimmers Blingz came my way a very long time ago as a give-away prize from Craft Stamper and to my shame I don't think I'd used them until now when I spotted them lurking on a shelf!! The green layer was stamped in the same way but using a green CS powder and shadow stamping with green ink. Background layer was made by sponging Distress inks and spritzing with some glimmer Mist - a very subtle sheen which doesn't show up on the scan.. The butterfly was cut out using a give-away die (from a recent magazine) and this was also painted with the shimmer paint.
