Let it Shimmer!

Welcome to the technique blog hop. This month we are all about the Shimmer brush! Today you should have arrived from Wendy’s blog, however if you didn’t that’s okay, it is a big circle and you will get back to her. I have three different cards with three different techniques to show you today.

Check out these cards! I am using the June stamp of the month tag set, and it is fantastic! Let’s get on with our cards, shall we?

This first card I used the Spectrum Noir markers. I colored in the dragonfly wings, then did a fun technique for the body. I mixed the mint and clear Shimmer brushes to create the iridescents on the wings of my dragon point.

On this second card, I used the watercolor pencils to color splotches on the wings, and then I used the mint and clear Shimmer brush mix to spread the color around on the wings.

On this last card, I used Bluebird and Julep inks to color in the wings on the dragonfly. Then covered with the Shimmer brush.

I really love how these cards turned out! I even did them on a video to show how to do these different techniques. You are welcome to watch it here.

I would love to know which of these cards is your favorite! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Then hop on over to Lauren’s blog for the next stop in this hop. Thanks so much see you later!
