Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC25)!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC25)!!! This week Cindy Haffner is our host. This week at Flourishes it is all about shimmerz so Cindy is challenging us to get out our stash of shimmerz, shake them up, and use them on our cards. There are so many wonderful ways to use these little pots of shine. As always, if you do not have any shimmerz, yet, no problem. All we ask is that you add some shine to your cards. We cannot wait to see what you create!!!

I am using one of my favorite Flourishes sets called Thank You. I am using some basicgray eva designer paper. I chose to create shimmer and sparkle to my card by using only the shimmerz to color the image. I am using royal red and celery shimmerz. I took a dried blender pen and dipped into each pot to color my image. I love how easy it was to do. The dried results is very striking. I used Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Cool Neutrals. I specifically used the C1 to add shadow to my image. The shimmerz is beautiful and dries very fast!!! I love the look!!!
