oh, WOW, those Shimmerz are to die for. i use Luminarte products (am i allowed to say that here?!) and like them, but the Shimmerz are SO, well, SHIMMERY!

love what the DT did with this sketch, and with the product.

here's my card - photographed a little dark but i wanted the twinklers to show up...

as for favourite colours of the Shimmerz? from what i've seen, i'd love to get the apricot or four leaf clover, but i'm sure i couldn't just stop there! :)

Genevieve said...

Wow, these projects are "Amazing". Great sketch.
It's my first time here. You can see my card on my blog:

The Shimmerz color "Angel wings" is my favorite...because we can use it everywhere.

WOW! artistic art work.I like it. With God, really nothing is impossible for making this successful. I like to print it by using EPSON Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper for its very reliable and accurate result. Just try it now.
