The other technique I taught for September was using the new Shimmer Paints. This was the first time I had used them and they are just gorgeous in real life giving such a lovely shimmery effect. Unfortunately they don’t photograph real well or I haven’t worked out yet how to so you can see the shimmer anyway.
Rich Razzleberry would have to be one of my new favourite colours since the Autumn/Winter Mini but I wasn’t sure what other colours I would use with it at first. I pulled out the new Colour Coach to see what suggestion it had and ended up with my colours for this card of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie.
Lots of new goodies used on this card too.
I’ve used the ‘For You Flower’ a la carte stamp combined with the stem & leaves stamp from the ‘Sweethearts’ stamp set. The ‘For You Flower’ has a coordinating punch which makes this a great one to use if you want to pop it up without having to worry about cutting out. I’ve also used some of the new Pumpkin Pie 1 1/4” Striped Grosgrain ribbon which I’ve added a new Rich Razzleberry button to. I didn’t use buttons much in the past but I can see me using lots of the new collections.
