Well today is a color challenge day at Create with Connie & Mary. And I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with just these two colors – Very Vanilla and Champagne Glimmer! I got out the paper and thought now what ink am I going to use!
I was a little concerned about what to do for this color challenge with no ink choices. Then I remembered that we have Champagne Shimmer Paint. And I recently purchased the Happy Hour stamp set so I thought I could use the champagne glass in that set. But doing the whole glass in the shimmer paint was really light so instead I decided to add just a little bit of one other color (Soft Suede) – it’s just a hint to outline my glasses. The champagne on the inside is the shimmer paint.
The card is Very Vanilla and then I have a strip of the Champagne glimmer paper – scallopped on one side. I added some Very Vanilla Seam Binding around the card. Then a punched circle stamped with the champagne glasses and “cheers!”. I also took the shimmer paint and sponged it around the edges of the circle. And the entire card is sprtized with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and the shimmer paint so it sparkles. here is a closer look –
I have to tell you I was really happy with how the whole card turned out! This would be a great wedding card of New Year card – what do you think? What can you create with these two colors? Have fun playing along.
