Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 138!

Well, I've had fun doing another challenge this week and.......I finally used the shimmer paint as a glittering agent.

WOW! It's amazing! The picture doesn't do the real thing justice.

You can find the sketch for this challenge at:

For this card I broke out some new products from the new Holiday Mini.... Deck the Halls paper, the new decorative strip called Northern Frost, new Glimmer Basics brads, Bright Christmas Stampset and the new Bigz die; Scalloped squares Duo.
I did shorten up the largest square from this die by repositioning it on the die and running it through the BigShot again.

Ink is Chocolate chip and the mini brads are retired.

The cardstock is Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla; I also used the Snowflake die #2.

For the shimmer I filled a small hand sanitizer spray bottle(approx 1 oz in size) with Alcohol to about 3/4 full and then filled the rest with the Champagne Mist Shimmer paint.I placed the snowflakes and the DSP layer in a paint box and sprayed. It was dry with in seconds and "Beautiful!"
Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by!
