Blingz And Thingz!


If you've seen me use Shimmerz here on my blog, well, watch out-- there's a whole new limited edition product line called Blingz that amps up the sparkle that you can apply to all your stamped creations! The range of sparkle in these little jars is off the charts. You might need sunglasses when you open the jar! LOL! I chose to dip into the new color Pink Poinsettia. And, I even had the perfect poinsettia stamp to use! (Poinsettia and Boxwood by Flourishes)

I started by stamping my image with Versamark and embossing it with gold detail embossing powder. After that - I let my paintbrush go to town! I painted the entire flower with Pink Poinsettia. While the flower was still wet, I added a touch of Pink Shimmerz on parts of the flower to add some shading. I love the way these paints blend, especially when they are still wet. It created the softest look with tons of bling! It's the perfect effect for holiday cards!

Here's a close up of the flower so you can see the shimmer of these new Blingz! The shimmer factor is amped and the sparkle seems to be more iridescent. It is just stunning!

Now when you look at the larger photo, you might have seen some shimmer on the mat. That was done by stamping my Damask backgrounder from Flourishes on my pink paper and then brushing some Pure Mica Powder over top in Luster Pearl. You just use as soft brush to apply and then wipe off the excess with a Swiffer Duster!

That's it for today my friends! If you want to check out some of the other creations and new colors of Bligz... click HERE!
