Guest Designing for Shimmerz – Easel Card

I am excited to be Guest Designing at the Shimmerz Blog for the month of December.

For this my last post I have created an Easel Card that started out being another example of the Frugal Cards concept, until I got to the end and just had to use the featured flower which I had been hoarding for quite some time.  I like to see how much I can get the patterned paper in the way of images, tones and perceived texture – and this card is a good example of that.

This is my card:


I started by cutting my card layers and fussy-cutting lots of pretties out of the Prima Delight patterned papers.  I then applied the Texturez Brick Wall with a palette knife through the Doily template.  I love how the Texturez are the perfect consistency and quality for this kind of application as they look perfect even on intricate templates like this one.


Once I had finished my card I decided to do my favourite Shimmerz mist technique…flicking dots of multiple colours over the entire card.  I love the softness that can be created with this technique by choosing a combination of Shimmerz mists colours that exist elsewhere in the project, even if they are not the feature colour.
