CPS #138, some Shimmerz and fall colors

I have played with Shimmerz paint before and found it to be a fun way to add some shimmer and shine to a project. This week at the Card Positioning Systems blog, the team is finding ways to put Shimmerz paint to good use.
I choose to PAINT the Shimmerz paint onto my white cardstock first and then I punched out shapes from the painted paper. The Shimmerz paints come in little jars and it is a very liquid medium. I used a paint brush to apply mine.
I used two coats of the Shimmerz paint on my cardstock. You can see how the paint caused my punched shapes to curl a little bit. I wanted that to happen so the flowers would look more 3-D. I used two colors, one for the larger flowers and another for the small flowers. I used the sun to try to exaggerate the shine on the flowers so you could see it.
Another card I wanted to share is perfectly fitting for a nice fall day. The bird design and the words are rub-on images from My Mind's Eye.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Grogeous creations once again. I love how the red flowers pop against the teal cardstock on the first creation.
