I received Shimmerz Celery and it took me a bit to figure out what I was going to do with it. But as it always does ispiration finally hit when I bought these lovely stamps from Inkadinkadoo.
You can see here that I used the Shimmerz to paint in the designs on the butterfly. I really like the way it turned out.
I do think that Shimmerz take a little bit of patience to get comfortable with. At first I wanted to paint them on too thin and the color wasn’t laying down smooth. Then I added to much and I had a puddle so I had to find a happy medium but once I did it turned out exactly like I expected.
I do have a few tips. Well one at least. If you happen to apply to much you can easily remove it by drying your paint brush with a paper towel and then gently dab at it with the brush. The brush will soak the Shimmerz up like a sponge and you can use the Shimmerz you picked up to paint another area. Also be careful not to rewet a painted area… it tends to get a little gloppy when you do that.
Overall I really liked the Shimmerz and I really liked this color. It went perfectly with the Pink Bazzill Bling that I used for the base of the card.
