Bring on the BLINGZ!

What do Flashee Fuchsia, Hottie Pink, Hi-Ho Silver and Pixie Dust all have in common? They are the new Valentine inspired Blingz from Shimmerz! And.... they are being released-- today!

To get ready for the release, I picked up one of my new favorite images - the large rose from Flourishes I Love Roses set and went to town with Flashee Fuchsia and Hottie Pink.

I started with pink and then used the fuchsia to shade in the rose. I can't tell you just much this baby sparkles! Many have asked - how much different are the Blingz from Shimmerz? Well, for starters it is a slightly thicker paint with a whole range of iridescent color packed inside the sparkle!

Take a look! Here's a close up!
To make the card, I used my Labels Two Nesties by Spellbinders to cut the shapes. I added some Antique Linen distress ink around the edge on the main ivory piece and then cut out and layered my rose on top. The leaves were painted with Key Lime, Olive and Sagebrush Shimmerz.

And... voila, a perfect card for your honey this Valentine's Day that is sure to sing.... with the Blingz! Want more inspiration? Head on over to the Shimmerz Blog!

I have so much brewing for my blog this week...so stay tuned! Flourishes will start the sneak peeks on their three new sets on Wednesday and YOU will have a chance to win the entire release!!!
