Shimmerz Fall Foliage

I’m over on the Shimmerz Paints blog today with a fall card using Reverse Confetti’s Fall Foliage and some beautiful Shimmerz paints.

This month we have a Shimmerz Team Color Challenge going on. The goal was is to challenging ourselves to pick a color to use on our projects that we might not typically use.  I choose So Sappy, which at first I thought was a light brown color but when you layer it you get a soft orange-ish/gold hue as well.

I love these colors together and the So Sappy in the background is so pretty.

I stamped my leaves on watercolor paper and masked off the top and bottom sections to get a clean line. I used clear embossing powder over the Versfine ink so that my lines on my leaves would remain crisp.

I then painted my leaves with the following Shimmerz products: Pumpkin, Crimson Tide, and Bumble Bee. I added a little bit of the other colors to the leaves to give them a fall color changing look. Once the leaves were dry, I used So Sappy Shimmerz for the background.

Once my paints were dry, I went over the background with some black paint splatters and then removed the tape and added some black pen lines to define my background.
