Twinkling Metallics

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend!!! I got a chance to pull out my Twinkling H2Os this weekend and I decided that I would play with them to see what I could come up with.......I really like how it turned out, I hope this will inspire you to give them a try, they are amazing and you can do so much with these incredible paints, I just love all that shimmer!!!

So without further ado..................my card..........




Products Used:
Creative Imaginations Twinkling H2Os - Bronze, Egyptian Gold, Solar Gold, Indian Copper, Scarab Beetle & Heavenly
Cardstock - Black, Brown & Metallic Bronze

Playing with the paints was so much fun, which actually made me decide to do something different, I am used to stamping a image and colouring it in, but this time I decided to use a large flat paintbrush and paint randomly over the black cardstock to create a background. Once I was done I spritzed the cardstock with some water and then used the heavenly colour with a stencil brush and pounced it all over to create a splatter effect. I absolutely love how it turned out.....so I decide to make it a simple card and show off the background. For some reason simple is not easy for me, I love to do lots of different things on my cards and for me it is hard to stop and just leave this as it is, but I did. 

The rest is easy, I cut the metallic bronze paper out of the 2nd smallest Labels 8 die and then cut the black cardstock with the smallest of the Labels 8 die and stamped the sentiment with the copper ink. Then add the ribbon and pop dot the sentiment.
