CCEE1318 - Make It Shimmer

Shirley is the CCEE hostess for May, and she's starting off the month with a great challenge.  We were to make a card with shimmer; however, it's hard to see the shimmer on my card.  I used SU's Shimmer White card stock and pearlescent chalks.  You can see the shimmer IRL, but not so much in the photo.

I used a positive/negative technique which I saw in the Technique Junkies Newsletter last year.  It's a little different than another positive/negative technique which I have used before.  I think this Inkadinkadoo image is one of my favorite collage images.

We'd love for you to play along with the CCEE Stampers.  Just pop over the the blog and join in on the fun.

Stamp:  Inkadinkadoo (don't know the name)
Paper:  SU Shimmer White; Mark's Finest Papers Aged Berry, Licorice Whips, Snow Storm Smooth
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accesories:  Copic markers, Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks, Rhinestone bling, Silver photo corners

That's a neat looking split-negative, Lois. I like the idea a lot, because doing it with white EP on black, the white powder never, ever (and I've tried about 4) matches the white paper on the other side. Lovely collage image too - and if it's shimmer card and shimmer chalks I bet it's even more gorgeous IRL.

This is a beautiful card, I love that collage. The silver corner adornments go perfectly with the shimmery look.

Lois, this is so elegant and pretty. Great detail on that image and soft and pretty colors. With the shimmer, I am sure this is even more gorgeous! Hugz!
