Shimmery Season's Greetings

Peerless shimmer inks are AWESOME! They are shimmery and lovely and you get a whole bottle of their fabulosity. I watercolored the background with the gold and silver shimmer and also painted the flowers with the shimmers. With my classes this month, I gave them the choice of painting the backgrounds or putting some shimmer blobs on a craft sheet, mixing in some water and smashing their watercolor paper in the shimmery puddles. There were so many cool backgrounds. So fun!

After the background dried, the season's greetings stamp was stamped with ranger ink and the leaves and berries were outlined with the gold and silver signo gel pens. Isn't that pretty?
Two of the paper forget-me-not flowers were attached with glue dots and one was popped up with 3D foam on top of a piece of blackberry card stock wrapped worth silver edged organdy ribbon. Pearl stickers were added to finish off the flower. Aren't they pretty in their shimmery state?

Finally, there's the fantastic font on the Merry Christmas on the inside of the card. That's from Handwritten Holiday. 

Want to get some peerless shimmers of your own? They're in my webstore:

Have a wonderfully creative day!!
