Try Stampin color challenge #5
Hello everyone, I'm sorry once again for not being able to participate in the last couple challenges, between work on the house and computer/internet problems it has been pretty hit and miss for me. I was playing around with the three suggested colors and shimmer paint. The pink and purple sorta blended together but they were there. This is a smooch card. The ink was put down then a bit of water added then the card stock smooched/pressed into the ink. I cut my panel down then mounted it a few times. The stamp set I used is a new one that I just got. I love it, it reminds me of home. We live on my husbands family home place that his great grandfather built and it has a barn, old windmill and just recently we put up a silo. Ours is a bank barn but I still love this set. The shimmer paint was put on the card first with plastic wrap. Just put a drop on a lid of some sort (like coolwhip) then take the plastic wrap and scrunch it up in your hand dab in the shimmer paint then dab around on your card let dry completely. If you look closely you can see the way it makes the background look sorta crackled. Tonight before I added this card we saw a sunset that was brighter than this, almost redish- orange, it was beautiful. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful time playing with these three colors. I know there are lots of ways to use them, be sure to check out all the designers cards.
