It's Not All Black and White

Shimmered Frenzy

Thanks so much to all of you for your well wishes and congratulations! It really means so much to me. I'm happy to say that I started taking my prenatal vitamins at night, rather than in the morning, and I'm feeling much less queasy now.

Here's another one of the cards I whipped up the other day. Again, keepin' it simple with pretty much one color and black and white. I stamped the flowers and swirls (Floral Frenzy by Lizzie Anne) with onyx black Versafine on Papertrey white card stock. The darker pink is pixie pink done with a water brush. The lighter pink is Shimmerz! Have you tried this stuff? This was my first go at it, and it was SO EASY! I just dipped my paint brush into the little jar and started painting. It's really easy to control. And it gave such a gorgeous pearly shimmer!

Since I wanted to show off my shimmer, I just added some ribbon, a sentiment (Sketched Sentiments), and a punched butterfly (covered in star dust Stickles) to this large panel. Card stock is pretty in pink.

Love the shine! Hmm, maybe I'll have to give shimmerz a try... I keep holding off since I have waaaay to many crafty toys as is. You know? :-)

Glad that you're feeling better - being quesy can't be fun. But congrats!!! That's so exciting!

My sister is expecting her first December 28th. I will be an Auntie of a little boy. I am very excited for her and for you.

Lovely card! I just purchased my 1st shimmerz myself from LAD during their WCMD sale. Can't wait to try them! (Have to get my craft room set up first).

Best wishes always,
