new papers

John and I made a trip to Posh Scraps the other day. They had gotten some really cool new papers in from Creative Imaginations. They almost remind me of t!m's Kraft Resist papers. There is a varnish embedded in the paper that will resist whatever medium you put over it. Creative Imaginations also has some really cool embellie type of the same resist thing, with the varnish being in black, so I picked up a package of them as well. I had to use the flower-y paper first. I used my Luminarte Twinkling H2O's and painted each individual flower and leaf. Then I picked a bird and butterfly to add to this quick card. It's hard to tell, but the parts that look like they don't have color on them have Pearl Blue H2O's on them. It really shimmers in real life!

Sue, I love this card - the paper is beautiful and unusual. I love your added shimmer and glimmer. I like the bird and the butterfly - they add a lovely dimension to the card and are perfectly placed. I bet this card looks amazing when the sunlight catches it.

Very beautiful Sue! I like that there is no sentiment so you can add something later for whatever purpose you need it. I love the layered look as well!
