Floral Watercolour with Shimmer Shakers

Hi friends! I've had the Heartfelt Corsage Stamp Set for a good few weeks now and decided to make another card, this time trying out some Cosmic Shimmer, Shimmer Shakers. 

What are Shimmer Shakers?

Put simply, they are vibrant dry pigment/mica powders that are activated with water. Once dry, they leave a luminous, saturated shimmer and sparkle. Can be used in light and dark card for a variety of finishes. 

To paint with Cosmic Shimmer Shakers all you have to do is sprinkle your desired colours on any non stick surface. Activate by adding a little bit of water.

  • Stamp out your images onto watercolour card with Black Onyx Versafine Ink.  
  • Colour the floral images with a layer of Shimmer Shakers. I've used Lush Pink and Bright Sunshine for the florals. The leaves were Bright Sunshine, Lime Burst and Cornflower Blue.
  • Once dry, die cut your stamped and coloured images, and place them directly onto an A2 card blank for positioning, but do not adhere. 
  • Stamp your sentiment, then add foam pads behind your floral die cuts. Trim. 
  • Add Nuvo Diamond Sequins to finish. 

The colours are so shimmery and beautiful and I really enjoyed using these Shimmer Shakers for the first time. They'll definitely be making a re-appearance in my crafting! I hope you've enjoyed my project post today and that the sparkle shines though. 
I really love this stamp and the beautiful shimmer combination for a clean and simple look.
