Shimmer Powder

I have many colors of color burst but when I saw these shimmer powders at my Local stamp store and the girl working mentioned how beautiful they are and the colors that others are really liking, I just had to buy them, and I am not disappointed at all, I just love these two colors and the shimmer makes it extra special.

I cut a piece of watercolor paper a little bigger than my die on all sides, then having the diecut next to me I figure out where the flowers would be and the leaves and tried to shake the powder onto the areas of my paper that there was a concentration of flowers and leaves and I didn't do too bad. The little scalloped die comes with the background panel die so you can add your sentiment to it.

Here is a close up picture so you can get an idea of the kind of shimmer these colors have in them.

It is softly snowing as I sit and right this post, so pretty, but oh so COLD the temperature is 23 F. Our normal for this time is 50. Guess it is a day to take down all my Autumn decorations and clean so I can get my Christmas decorations out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

You're always trying something new! It's nice that you have a stamp store nearby so you can browse and see in person. I sure miss ours. This looks beautiful with the colors and shimmer, and you did a good job with where you concentrated the colors. Gorgeous die, too!

i am so jealous of your snow! it is sunny here but cold and windy. really windy, if it continues like this, we will not have any leaves to rake!!

i have all of fall put away, but honestly, i didn't put much out. christmas is 1/2 done inside and all done outside. i'm so glad we did the outside on sunday, i was actually too hot with just a sweatshirt!!!

Debbie said...

You can also spray shimmer mist over your colour bursts too, Connie did it to my brushos on a card at the weekend... if you want some more colours, but very pretty.
Brilliant card really love it.
Sending prayer hugs with sunshine too from Oz.

I have been wondering what the difference is with these powders. The card is really great, wonderful to die cut it.
