Winter Joy

Hi everyone,
I fell in love with Jill Foster's card and just had to try CASE her.  I've been watching her use Shimmerz and they have quite the shine to them, even though my picture doesn't do them justice.  Please check out Jill Foster's how to video here.  This video was actually showing us how to use the MISTI for a multi colored sentiment.  Here's a picture of her finished card.  Isn't it gorgeous?

SU's Real Red Ink
Tuxedo Black Ink
Shimmerz paints in Berry-lious, Jilted Jade, Sunflower and Royal Red
Shimmerz Aqua Huez in Ivy League

My card didn't turn out quite like Jill's.  I only stamped 3 poinsettias, used a different sentiment that worked better on my card and my blending on the background needs some work.  It's not as gorgeous as Jill's, but I still really like the way it turned out.  This may be one of my Christmas cards.  If you haven't tried the Shimmerz paints, here's my 2 cents worth.  I like how bright the colors are and how easy they are to use.  I'm not an art major and my no means a water color expert, but they worked just as well as my Peerless and the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi color set I have, too.

Thank you for stopping by, I love it when you do.  Have an awesome week!


  1. Wow Sue, this is gorgeous!! I'm a big fan of Jill's too. Her work is amazing and your card is equally as amazing as hers! I've never tried any of those water colors you've listed. I think I live under a rock. ;0) A beautiful piece of art work here, my friend!

  2. Oh my gosh...this turned out incredible Sue!! Your Poinsettia's are just lovely, and I really like how you did the sentiment with the two colors too! And your backgrounds looks just as good as Jill's! Fabulous card my friend...love it!! :0)
