Shimmerz Butterfly

I’m over at the Shimmerz Paints Blog today with a spring butterfly card using a mixture of beautiful Vibez and Spritz sprays.

I started out with watercolor paper and used the new cut file designed by Paige Evans (part of the NEW Missy Whidden Kit from Shimmerz Paints) as a stencil and sprayed it with the bright Chick-a-dee Spritz. I let that layer dry and then added a layer of Mango Tango and then Mustard Seed Vibez. The Spritz layer gave it a bold color without shine but when layered with the shine of the other two Vibez it really is pretty.

While that was drying I took another piece of watercolor paper and sprayed it with the Chick-a-dee and spritzed it with water to get a lighter look. Then I added Jeni B Bleu Vibez for a pretty turquoise color for my die cut butterfly. I used a little Before Dawn Vibez for the body of the butterfly.

I finished the card off with a sentiment from Reverse Confetti called The Most Beauty and added some sequins. I love how versatile the cut files are and that you can resize them as well as use them as a stencil. I can’t wait to make another card with my leftover piece, the colors are so pretty!

  2. I’ve never tried any paint spritz/spray products but they sure look like fun and if you can get such a cool background like this, I better jump on the bandwagon!! Love the combo of colours, so bright and happy. And the turquoise butterfly is stunning against the citrus backdrop. I’m so glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT!
