I am still trying out some new things for Christmas cards. Here I tried a new product called Shimmerz. It is a thin watercolor paint with mica. It dries very quickly and adds a shimmer when you tilt your card. I used a white layer of "angel wings" shimmerz on the the ornaments in this card. I know you can't see it so why don't you head over to the home site so you can enter you name for the blog candy that will be released on Nov 1st (see post for Wed Oct 22 Colors and Candy).
I began this card with a watercolor wash for the background. Embossed the ornaments with Ranger Seafoam white embossing powder so I use a embossed resist technique to color them. One oops-I tried to make 3 different colored balls but the background yellow tones turned my blue ink into green. Greenry stamps are from the SU Peaceful Wishes set and the ornaments are in a River City set.
