Hello! Thanks for taking a look at my card today! This card is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesdays Challenge, which this week is to use Shimmerz or any sort of shimmer.... well I sure used the Shimmerz on this one!
I made this one with the July Released Mother Teresa set from Our Daily Bread designs. I just love coloring this beautiful bloom! I stamped it on 140 lb Watercolor paper by Aquarello. I watercolored with Mellow Moss, Bordering blue, Apricot Appeal and Soft Sky. I only tipped the petals with Apricot Appeal, then painted the petals with Shimmerz Angel wings, and the Stamen with Candlelight shimmerz. I added swirls of Shimmerz Angel Wings to the water and around the outside of my Nestabilities blossom die cut. It really gives it a great shimmer!
My corner treatments are made using GPWhite, embossing the Nellie Snellen design (Kars & Co) by running it through my big shot. I Painted the whole thing with Candlelight Shimmerz and it makes it look like I used some great shimmery paper. I then cut along the edge of the design and did that twice.
My card base is a pale yellow textured Bazzill card stock. I matted with Mellow Moss, and then BasicGrey Wisteria. This dp is just yummy! It actually served as the inspiration for this whole card. The flowers remind me of Lotus or Waterlilies... and the pale yellow design is a butterfly pattern. I matted my main image on another Nesty Blossom in Mellow Moss, and finished with Memory Box Pearls and tiny ribbon from Target.
Hope you enjoyed my samples of July's ODBD sets. I can hardly believe my two months as Guest Designer are almost over! I had a blast doing this and can honestly say I absolutely adore these stamps! Thank you Kelley and Judy for giving me this opportunity!
