Check out the new and improved Shimmerz website!

Shimmerz has a new and improved website!! Here is the link: Shimmerz. You can order all of your favorite colors of Shimmerz, Blingz and Spritz directly from the site!

I tried something different with Spritz: I used removable Scotch tape as a mask.

Photobucket

I simply added strips of scotch tape to white cardstock in a criss-cross pattern. I made sure the tape strips were nice and secure, then I sprayed four different colors of Spritz over the tape. I used Plum Pudding, Sapphire, Sea Foam and Olive Branch. I pulled off the tape, then I hand-stitched around the edge to give it some definition. I was left with this beautiful white criss-cross pattern surrounded by a sea of rainbow Spritz!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

love the layout, I used tape as well one day. Didn't your stick to the paper? I found it hard to get it off without tearing the paper up. Now off to the new Shimmerz site. Can't wait till the new vintage stuff comes out!
