Card Positioning Systems and Shimmerz

Did you see over on the Card Positioning Systems blog that Shimmerz is the sponsor there??? Love their sketches over there and they always have such amazing samples! Well, when I found out that Shimmerz was sponsoring I just HAD to play along. :)
Here's a lookie at the sketch


And here is my take on it!

I used black pigment ink on my chipboard letters and let it dry and then spritzed those babies up with Licorice Spritz. Oh my goodness I LOVE the look it gives! I don't know about you, but I love to put glitter on my chipboard. Problem with doing that is, it's hard to stick ANYTHING else on top of that...because...well, nothing sticks to glitter very well! With the Shimmerz on the chipboard, I get all of that shimmery effect AND I can still adhere something on top of it, SCOOORE! I also used a little Island Salsa Blingz to the rust color of the candy corn because it was such a great match! Here's a closeup.


This picture honestly does not do it any justice. You're just gonna have to take my word on how shimmery and sparkly this card is. :)

All of the patterned paper is from the Boo to You! paper kit by My Mind's Eye. I did stamp the little spiders from Hero Arts Owl-Oween set and of course, I used my Slice to cut some of the shaped papers you see on the card. Can I just say that I am lovin' my Slice! Oh yeah, I used the Noteworthy design card, fyi!

Also...no comments from the peanut gallery on my horribad stitching. Yeah....I meant to do that on purpose...that's right! That's my final word and I'm stickin' to it!

Hope you have a great day and I so appreciate you for stopping by to visit to get, "in stamping mode."
