Sweet Summer Shimmer

This was my other Stamp-a-Stack design for this month. We used 2 gorgeous Sale-a-Bration sets on these cards - Sweet Summer and So Happy for You. They are both quite whimsical in style, so I think they work together really well. Can you believe this colour combo is all from the Subtles family? Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi and Rose Red. I love that the Subtles have much deeper colours now...they used to be a little too, well... subtle LOL.
We stamped all of the images in Black Stazon and then coloured them in with a 50-50 mix of re-inker and Platinum Shimmer Paint.

Here's a TIP for you - don't toss out your dried-out Blender Pens! They are perfect for applying colour to detailed images like these. I just rinsed the tips of mine out afterwards, and then they are ready to use with new colours next time.

Doesn't the Elegant Lines embossing folder and the Organza ribbon complement these cards nicely? :o) Very purty!
