Bling seems to be where it's at these days. I love BLING and I love that there are so many ways to get some serious BLING or some subtle BLING. I was able to get my hands on these adorable little bottles of SHIMMERZ paint this week and of course, I had to try it on a project immediately. They come in a number of colors and all you need to do is use a paint brush and add it to your project. I'm going to try out some other techniques but this is the easiest and most obvious.
I stamped the flower and vine stamp on white cardstock with black ColorBox ink and embossed it with black Top Boss embossing powder. I didn't need to emboss it but I wanted my black lines to be as intense as possible and by embossing the image, I created little "walls" so to speak to help contain my colors. These paints wouldn't have flowed all over if I didn't have the "walls, I just think it helps with the overall look.
I let the sun shine on my colored image so that you could for sure see the BLING that comes with the Shimmerz Paints. I also stamped and colored the flower twice and cut one out so that my image is more 3-D. You can also see the embossed dots. I used a Cuttlebug embossing plate and the green paper is Core'dinations so I slightly sanded my embossed dots to reveal the underneath color of the paper.
