Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Card Concept Challenge, please scroll to the bottom of this post for the inspiration photo. I had so much fun playing today! I pulled out a digi set from Verve Stamps called Lucky Day and paired it up with Julee's current Mojo Sketch.
I recently ordered several goodies from Shimmerz Paints and I was dieing to play with them again, so today was a great time! For the main panel I did some Smooshing with 3 different Shimmerz goodies (Celery Shimmerz, Pining For You Creameez, Elfin Magic Vibez). The Vibez and Shimmerz are already wet so I just added them to my plastic baggie with a paint brush, but the Creameez needed water added so I used a paint brush to wet the bottle and added to my plastic then spritzed it for more wetness. After I had the panel just the way I liked it I went back and spritzed on a bit more of the Elfin Magic Vibez.
I printed out 2 cups, the first one (the handled mug) was printed on a laser printer. I added a sheet of Green Foil and ran it through my laminator… perfectly foil-y and shimmer-y!!!! For the 2nd cup I colored it with some Copics adding a few "white dots" with a Sharpie Paint Pen (I forgot how much I LOVE this pen!!!!). I was a little worried the sentiment might not show up well enough so I printed it off on some vellum and used a FIGURE OF SPEECH die. I added a few Gold sequins just for some contrast. I am so in LOVE with this card!!!!
