Have you been drooling over the stamps at Art Neko? Every time I visit their website, I find more and more stamps that I want to play with. One such stamp was this one, called Hexagons and Flowers.
I really wanted to see how they would look with some shimmer paints called Silks. I pulled out some greens and pinks and a pale blue paint and colored them with a paintbrush. I used some Emperor's Gold Silks paint for the hexagons in the stamp and then I used the same gold paint on my hexagon background die cut.
For the blue background on my card base, I sprayed it with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Spray Stain, and then I decided it needed some shimmer. I sprayed it again with some Patina Glimmer Mist, and then with some Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. I love the shimmer on this card!
To help tone things down, I added some simple white butterflies with some hot pink rhinestones. There is so much shimmer and gold going on, I didn't want the butterflies to overwhelm the card with yet more color and shimmer. :-)
