Technique Talking about Shimmerz!

As promised, I'd like to share my last project with you using Shimmerz.  This has been a real treat using these glimmery, luscious paints!

Shimmery Happy Birthday:

This was such a quick project and one that you can customize to meet any occasion by just changing the color of Shimmerz paints.  I also think this worked perfectly with the Distressed Circle Scrapblock, because it's meant to be imperfect... on purpose.  I don't think I'd give this a go with something terribly intricate.

I used multiple colors for variation, which I LOVED.  The only hazard with this is... I can see myself needing a lot of Shimmerz paints.  Like all of them.  *gulp*
For all the details on the project with step-by-step instructions, stop by the Techniqe Talk forum at CHF for my tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by!
