"Shimmer Dust Cards" by Anita Enright

Welcome back Papercrafters

My share with you today stemmed from a bit of playing with the Colour Shimmer Dusts on aqua paper.  I actually love seeing what 'other' colour appears in the dust once the water hits it.  
I loved the outcome that much that I decided to turn them in to a couple of cards.

Not everything you create needs to be very involved, sometimes the creations we make can happen quickly and they can end up looking just as good as if you spent hours on it.

My first card I chose Violet Colour Shimmer Dust.  I sprinkled it over my aqua paper and then hit it with the water spray.  The more water I added the more colour came out.  
When the water hit the Colour Shimmer Dust for the first time you could already see some blues coming out.

I dried the paper off with my heat gun and around the edges of the purple in the middle there is a nice blue hue and you can also see it around the bottom right of the photo.

I mounted the aqua paper on to a matching mauve cardstock and then on to my card base.  I've been wanting to use one of my new 'favourite' die frames from Couture Creations.  It has really shown off the background due to it's openness. 

 I repeated the same process on a second smaller piece of aqua paper so that I could die cut a butterfly and some leaves to put on the front of the card.  I also sprinkled some of the Colour Shimmer Dust on a piece of gauze to colour it up. 

My second card I played with the Colour Shimmer Dust in Peacock.  I so love all the dusts but I think maybe this is my favourite. Check out the colours on the aqua paper. You will notice a little bit of lime green come through too.

I put it all together with some matching flowers to finish them off.  I decided not to put any sentiments on them as I will do that before I use them.... when I use them.

Check out the closeups and a full image of my 'Peacock' card. Enjoy!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Now get those products out and just have a play.... then see what you can make with your samples.

Take care.
